Legalising documents for your company
Many companies will wish to have bank accounts outside Gibraltar, or will wish to sign public documents with a notary on behalf of the company.
For this, you will require a Certificate of Good Standing for your company, stating the directors and (if required) the shareholders of the company.
For a company to be in good standing, it needs to be up to date in filing company accounts, filing annual returns, and having directors, secretaries and a registered address in accordance with the Gibraltar Companies (Accounts) Ordinance.
