Where do I need to keep my certificate of incorporation?


There seems to a be a number of strict rules about where one must keep the statutory records for their companies. Do the same rules apply to the certificate of incorporation, or does that not fall under the same category of records?

I currently just store the certificate on my computer because i set up my company online, so I only received a digital copy from Companies House. Am I required to print a copy and keep it with my other records in a certain folder or such?



Limited companies and LLPs should keep a paper and/or digital copy of their certificate of incorporation and other registration documents at their registered office or inspection location. The best thing to do is to keep a copy with your statutory records so they’re all together and easily accessible. If anyone makes an inspection request, you know where everything is.
