Certificate of Good Standing – What is this document and how do I get it?
The Certificate of Good Standing is a document often required by foreign authorities and organisations. Banks and other financial institutions often request these documents to check the status of a Seychelles offshore company.
The certificate can be requested to confirm the company’s official information and also that the company is “in good condition” according to the records of the Seychelles Registry. This means that the company application is up to date and the registrar does not take any action to remove the company from the register.
This certificate is often legalized with an apostille when presented abroad. This will ensure that the document is officially recognised as a Seychelles document.
If you have been asked to legalize your company documents, you can receive an apostille for the certificate of incumbency. Apostilles legalise documents for international use so that they are recognised under the Hague Convention.
