Overseas customers purchasing an address service, company formation or related service will be asked to provide identification documents for the people that are using the service. (e.g. all directors, shareholders, PSCs, members, partners, owners of the business etc.)
Non-UK residents need to provide a notarised copy of the following documents
Photo Identification – A copy of a passport or photo driving licence (with at least 6 months validity).
Address Identification – A copy of a utility bill, council tax letter or bank statement (issued in the last 3 months). We DO NOT accept mobile phone bills, tax statements or invoices. The document must confirm you are living at an address.
The notary public must confirm that they have checked the veracity of the documents and not simply make copies. It is essential that the address has been verified.
Registration Form – We need a signed copy of our registration form.
You need to send the notary certified documents to us by post or courier. We cannot accept copies by email. Our team will then contact the notary to confirm they checked and certified the documents.
If the documents are not in English you must also provide a translation of all documents after they have been notarised. If we are unable to interpret the documents from your translation we will not be able to accept them.
