Persons operating businesses through companies and who are looking to do business overseas are often required to provide information about their companies to foreign governments, banks, other lenders or potential investors.
We provide Notarial Certificates of Good Standing for Australian companies that contain the following information:
- evidence of the company’s incorporation;
- that is has been in continuous existence since the date of incorporation;
- the directors and officeholders of the company;
- that a company’s directors can execute documents on its behalf;
- the registered office of the company and it’s principal place of business;
- that it is not in liquidation, receivership or administration;
- that it is not facing strike off action by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (“ASIC”); and
- the company’s Constitution.
In circumstances where the constitution of the company is to form part of the certificate the secretary of the company is asked to sign a statutory declaration annexing a copy of the constitution. The certificate which is notarised has attached to it a copy of the company’s constitution, an extracted company search from ASIC and a copy of the certificate of registration of the company.
