Certificate of Incumbency

A certificate of incumbency is often used by UK companies who are trading overseas or have directors who are based outside the UK.

The certificate can display a variety of details about the company include any of the following details:

  • Company name
  • Company registration number
  • Place of registered
  • Date of incorporation
  • Registered office address
  • Directors details
  • Shareholders details
  • Date Confirmation Statement is due
  • Accounting reference date
  • Details of where the company registers are held
  • Details of any mortgages or charges
  • Confirmation that the company is in good standing and not in liquidation
  • Confirmation that no action has been taken to close the company and no proceedings are pending or threatened against the company

The Certificate of Incumbency is not a government issued document and would be signed by an authorised signatory for the company or by the agent issuing the certificate.

If you require a formal document we can obtain a Certificate of Goodstanding which is signed by the Registrar of Companies.

The certificate can be ordered with apostile and our service includes creating the document, arranging for certification by our UK solicitor and legalisation by apostile.
