Legalising Company and Corporate Documents for use in a Foreign Country

Any South-African company or close corporation that has aspirations to open a foreign branch or wish to do business or acquire assets or liabilities in a foreign country will undoubtedly be requested to deliver a legalised set of its incorporation documents and ancillary supporting documents. We have a comprehensive service pertaining to the acquisition and legalisation of company documents needed for foreign use.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact with us, or alternatively click here to get a quotation or place an order. You are also welcome to visit our offices to discuss your options and the proposed legalisation process and estimated time frames for completion. The process can sometimes be very involved and complicated. Making a mistake with the procedural steps can end up costing your company substantial amounts of money. As we legalise thousands of documents, including incorporation documents, every year we have the necessary expertise, to legalise your documents professionally, efficiently and most important in the case of corporate matters confidentially.  


I misplaced my documents. Where can I obtain copies of my Company registration and incorporation documents?

 If you have lost your original Company Incorporation documents then you can obtain copies of these documents through us. Alternatively, your company formation service provider could assist in this regard. If you need our assistance we would be pleased to apply to CIPC and order replacement documents on your behalf. Please contact with us or complete an order form or quotation request form to get started.

Can I legalise my company documentation for use outside the borders of South-Africa. Can I combine the documents in one bundle under cover of a single apostille certificate?

Yes company documents can be legalised through either apostille certificate or authentication and embassy legalisation. We advise you however to obtain a quotation for the services as some embassies charge substantial fees for embassy legalisations of documents used for corporate purposes. If we are legalising multiple company documents for the same company we are able to bind the documents as a set under one apostille certificate or authentication certificate. These documents are thus bound together as one set. This method of processing company documents is usually acceptable for use overseas although if you are unsure please contact the foreign authority requesting your documents.
