A company which is registered with the Barbados registry, is said to be in Good Standing if it has filed and continued to file all statutory filings and paid all annual fees which are due.
We only supply a certificate of Good Standing if you have the IBC business licence number for the registry to provide official documents. Please note this is different to the company registration number and usually only held by the actual company or the Barbados registered agent.
For the document to be issued the requirements for this are that the company licence fees to the registry are up to date.
