Glad to see you ignored my certificate of incorporation!


Explanation:
In company formation in England and Wales, the Certificate of Registration is issued before the Certificate of Incorporation. The French K bis provides an up-to-date summary of all relevant company details, many of which can only be obtained in the UK by doing a simple company search in the UK.

« Our business is the registration and provision of company information. We aim to satisfy regulatory obligations and cusotmer needs efficiently and economically and with quality services. «

(The type of information you wish to obtain form the search will determine the cost, if any for the results of the search. Basic company informaiton is free).

http://ws2.companieshouse.gov.uk/frame.cgi?OPT=free
