Today, dynamic business development is directly related to international contacts. Small and large enterprises expand their markets beyond Ukraine, cooperate with foreign partners, actively participate in conferences and exhibitions. For all this, companies need to provide founding documents abroad.
Apostille for legal entities
The Hague Convention made it easier for Member States to legalize documents. Now, to validate the papers and acts, issued by official bodies, abroad, it is enough to pass the procedure of apostillation. In Ukraine, it is carried out in the relevant Ministries. The documents are checked for authenticity by the national authorities and then a stamp, called an apostille, is placed on the original or a copy.
Legal entities, like individual ones, also should make apostillation of their documents. Thanks to it, the founding and other documents are valid abroad. Most often, the following notarial documents are to be apostilled:
- incorporation contract;
- certificate of registration;
- power of attorney.
Moreover, other documents issued by the tax office, Pension Fund, often undergo a procedure of double apostillation. After the first stamp is placed, the papers are translated and a translator’s signature is certified by a notary. In some cases, a notary’s seal and signature also have to undergo apostillation.
It is important to know!
Every Member State of the Hague Convention has its own individual requirements for the registration of notarized documents of legal entities with an apostille stamp.
All notarized documents pass the procedure of apostillation at the Ministry of Justice. For this, originals and copies of acts are provided. Stamping takes 2 to 7 days.
