A：Originals or Certified true copies of the following documents, or their jurisdictional equivalent, are to be provided for all businesses owned in part or in whole:
• certificate of incorporation.
• memorandum and articles of association.
• share register.
• register of directors.
In those cases where the official extract from the National company registry of the applicable jurisdiction contains all the relevant details, including incorporation information, list of shareholders, registered and paid capital including dates, and the list of directors and/or all legal persons, this extract can be submitted instead of the above documents.
Depending on the jurisdiction, documents can, at times, be titled in a different manner but would still hold jurisdictional equivalence.
When this occurs, a declaration is required stipulating such differences in titles.
If you are not sure whether the official extract or any of the document satisfies the required criteria, it is suggested that you seek advice from the Agency’s customer care department before submitting the application pack.
