APOSTILLE SERVICES CANCELLED IN THE UK
The FCO have closed the Legalisation Office until further notice
UK companies conducting business internationally, setting up overseas branches or opening a bank account in another country will often need to provide evidence of the structure of the UK registered company.
Various documents can be used for this purpose and these documents will usually require legalisation before they are presented overseas.
Certificate of Good Standing
In order for any document to be legalised with the UK apostille the document must be signed by a person of a recognised legal standing or stamped by a recognised legal authority. The legal signatory will verify the document before adding their signature or seal. There are several means available to verify a given document.
The issuance of digital documents is becoming increasingly prevalent in the continually evolving information age of today. At present, the apostille is a certificate attached to a physical document which raises the question of how to legalise a document that exists in an electronic format only.
Customers contacting our office are often frustrated that their document has been rejected by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). When documents are rejected they are returned by the FCO apostille service with a standard letter that lists the reasons your document may not be suitable.
In this article we look at some of the common reasons documents are returned by the FCO legalisation team.
Christmas is approaching and another year is coming to a close.

Each year we often find some of the most urgent orders are received during this period and we strive to maintain our efficient service wherever possible.
Below you will find everything you need to know about our processing times over the festive period.
