A certified copy includes a stamp or certification from the government agency that confirms that the version included with the stamp or certification is a true and correct copy of the official governmental record.
There are times when you will need to prove that the copy you are including is really the official copy on file with the government. Sometimes banks require a certified copy. To be admissible in court, you will often need a certified copy of your documents. If you are going through a transaction such as a merger, sale or financing, the other party may want certified copies as part of their due diligence. Essentially, any time you need to show the veracity of your corporate documentation, you will likely need a certified copy.
Our fees are the same regardless of the state. Each state, however, charges a fee on top of that and it varies by each state. The state fees range from $15-$75 and may also depend on the length of your document.
A typical order may take two to three weeks because we have to rely upon government entities to mail documents. You may be able to request expedited service at an additional cost.
There are more uses for certified copies than just the ones listed above. Swyft’s Resource Center can help guide you through some of those, along with other aspects of business management, with guides, articles, and case studies.
