This course revolves around the legal and practical matters of ‘Preparing notarial certificates using information from Companies House’. It looks at what information is available at Companies House and discusses what can be relied upon and what cannot be relied upon. There are several examples of certificates and how small facts can cause them to differ. Finally you are asked to complete three tasks as a practical exercise. The course is designed to give confidence to notaries with little experience of company law and those with experience of company law will find them an interesting challenge.
