Certificate of Fact


A Certificate of Fact is an official status report which is capable of detailing statutory information on a specific UK company. Under normal circumstances, the Certificate of Fact might be very similar to that of a Certificate of Good Standing, with the exception that the former will not contain a statement that the company in question is in fact in good standing.

The primary purpose of a Certificate of Fact is to provide statutory information on a UK company where the entity in question has outstanding filing obligations or has been dissolved and therefore is no longer considered to be in good standing.

The are many scenarios where a Certificate of Fact could be deemed as necessary including litigation claims by a foreign entity against a UK company. Often it is necessary to provide some form of official documentation to a foreign financial institutions which certifies the UK company’s existence, it officers and shareholdings.

Should the UK company have outstanding filing obligations, the Certificate of Fact might provide the required information, although that fact that the good standing statement is absent might raise some queries.
