Certificate of Good Standing Service

Confirmation of your company's status

This service is for customers who require confirmation (or proof) from Companies House that their company has filed all paperwork and has no outstanding fees - and therefore said to be in good standing.

The following information will be included on the Certificate:

  • Date of incorporation
  • Director(s) name(s)
  • Company secretary name (if relevant)
  • Registered office address
  • Company objects (if relevant)
  • Verification that your company is up to date with filing requirements

Why would I need this Certificate?

A Certificate of Good Standing is often requested when opening a business bank account or when incorporating an overseas branch of an existing UK company.

Share and shareholder information

Due to changes to the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Act on 30th June 2016, you will no longer be able to order Certificates of Good Standing with information on shareholders, shareholdings or statement of capital information.

How is my Certificate delivered?

We will deliver your Certificate by Royal Mail Special Delivery or International Tracked and Signed mail. Premium Courier delivery such as DHL is also available at an additional charge.

Standard Service

From start to finish, Rapid Formations website was a breeze. It is easy to understand, and it has a good help section for those who need advice.
