Establishing the existence of a Belize company and obtaining copies of official company documents held at the company registry may be required for Due Diligence or Legal requirements.

Apostilled Belize Company Documents

An Apostille enables the presenter to bypass further certification and immediately use the documents in the intended country. All Belize Company documents are complete with certification from an authorised body. An Apostille certificate can be obtained for most Belize company documents.

This involves the addition of a certificate, either stamped on the document itself or attached to the document which certifies country of origin of the document, capacity in which a document has been signed, official seal and place, date and document number

Belize Certificate of Good Standing

We are able to obtain a Certificate of Good Standing from the Companies Registrar certifying that a company is in Good Standing. The Certificate resembles the initial Certificate of Incorporation and is used to formally confirm the company’s continued legal existence. It also confirms that all administrative requirements have been complied with.
