In some cases sections 2, 3 or 4 are not completed as some documents only have a stamp whilst other documents may only have a signature of a recognised official.
Some people argue that the apostille is bureaucratic and delays processing urgent documents. However, it is being requested more often and is essential in many circumstances when conducting business abroad. Legalising documents for use outside of the UK enables businesses to open bank accounts, register branches overseas, issue contracts, sign distributor agreements and supply goods or services abroad.
There are many different company documents that can be legalised with the apostille. We assist customers with legalising their UK documents including official Companies House documents, certificates of good standing, company agreements, powers of attorney and company formation documents.
