Issued by the Registrar of Companies a Certificate of Good Standing authenticates the existence of the company and provides evidence of the officers and share capital. It is often used when a UK company needs to be registered or to trade outside the UK.
The certificate confirms the company name, number, date of incorporation and that it has been in continuous and unbroken existence since its incorporation. It also states that no action is currently being taken by the Registrar of Companies to strike the company off the register and dissolving it as defunct. In addition, and as far as the Registrar is aware, the company is not in liquidation or subject to an administration order and no receiver or manager of the company’s property has been appointed. The certificate will not be issued if the company is not up to date with the filing of annual returns and accounts.
Details of the Registered Office address, name of Directors and Secretary can be added on request. We will order the certificate with this extra information unless you indicate OTHERWISE in the Extra Information Box in the checkout.
Due to Changes brought in by the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Act on 30th June 2016, Companies House are no longer be able to issue certificates with information on shareholders, shareholdings and statement of capital.
