Where is my Certificate of Incorporation?

All limited companies formed with us are provided with a digital version of the certificate of incorporation (think of it as a company’s birth certificate) that is available to view and download as soon as the company has been formed. In this post we’ll look at how you can download yours.

Viewing your certificate of incorporation is a simple five step process. After your company has been formed:

1.Login to your Companies MadeSimple account

2.Select the ‘My Companies’ option from your dashboard

3.Click on your company name

4.You’re now in your company’s admin area – scroll down to ‘My Company Documents’ and select ‘View’ next to ’IncorporationCertificate.pdf’

5.The document will go straight to the downloads section of your computer

That’s it!

The same process applies if you want to download your company’s memorandum and articles, the only difference is that in step 4, select the ‘View’ option next to ‘Articles/Memorandum’.

Please note, if your company wasn’t formed with us but was instead imported onto our system so that you can advantage of our company secretarial system, company documents will not be available to download.
