Certificate of good standing for a British company

The certificate of good standing certifies that your company has been in continuous, unbroken existence since its incorporation and that no action is currently being taken to strike it off the Companies House register.

When a certificate of good standing is needed?

If you would like to register a branch overseas such as in Hong Kong or Malaysia or Singapore, the Registrar of Companies in the home country would require the certification that your UK company is in compliance and still active. Banks, lenders, a business corporation based overseas that collaborate with your UK company would require you to provide them with a certificate of good standing to prove the existence of your company at the time of entering into a business transaction with you.
