You have asked me to provide certified copies of documents. Who can certify documents for me?

The following people can certify documents for you:

  • Accountants with a current ‘practicing’ membership, registered with ICAEW, ICAS, CAI, ACCA, CIPFA or CIMA.
  • Solicitors
  • Post Office – a fee may be charged for using this service
  • Bank staff (must include branch stamp)


Certifiers must clearly write that they have seen the original document. For photo ID, they must confirm that the photograph represents a true likeness of the individual. They must include their full name, profession, business address, phone number and the date they certified the document).

Certified copies must all be in colour and dated within the past 3 months.

Please note that you can request additional official copies of Birth, Marriage or the Death Certificates at the time you obtain the original from the Register Office. You may also request official copies at a later date from the General Register Office: Order a copy of a birth, death or marriage certificate (www.gov.uk).

You may prefer to send original or certified documents by recorded or tracked delivery to ensure they don’t get lost in the post. But be aware, most delivery companies will charge for this service.
