Certificate of Free Sale


Document Legalisation

We can issue the apostille certificate on all UK Certificates of Free Sale and can also provide the solicitor certification where necessary. Our all-inclusive service will ensure your documents are correctly legalised with the apostille so that they will be accepted outside of the UK.

This document is needed when exporting goods overseas. In addition to a Certificate of Free Sale, the following documents may also be required:-

  • Certificate of Origin
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Health Certificate
  • GMP Certificate

We make the apostille service as simple as possible.

For only £66* we arrange for your Certificate of Free Sale document to be solicitor certified and issued with the apostille.

* If the document has been issued with an original ink signature from the issuing Government Official then the document will require the apostille only. The fee for this is £54.00. Please contact us for advice.

Original or Copy?

It is standard practice to issue the apostille to the original Certificate of Free Sale wherever possible. This ultimately depends on how the document has been issued. If the document has been issued with the original ink signature of the issuing government official then we advise legalising the original document to verify this signature. However, many Certificates of Free Sale are now issued electronically and have a digital signature only. Where this is the case the document will need to be solicitor certified as a copy in order to be eligible for the apostille. 

How to order an apostille for a Certificate of Free Sale?

Simply purchase your apostille online and post or email your document to us (depending on how this has been issued as per the above guidance). Our fast and low cost service means you can get on with your business while we take care of the legalisation service.

Do you have multiple company documents?

If you have multiple documents relating to one company we may be able to combine these into a bound set to save you money. The documents will be legally bound together with a solicitor's cover sheet and one apostille will be issued to legalise all documents contained therein.

For example, we could combine the following documents into a set:

  • Certificate of Incorporation
  • Certificate of Good Standing
  • Memorandum & Articles of Association
  • Combined Register
  • Certificate of Free Sale

The fee for the solicitor certification and apostille for a set of company documents is £90.00. If this would be your preference please contact us for advice.
