Certified Copies are copies of a document which are certified by a qualified party for official use.
Certified Copies are copies of a document which are certified by a qualified party for official use, such as government proceedings or bank account openings. The purpose of this is for a third party to verify the copies of an official document, in order to confirm there were no amendments or alterations of the document.
These are normally accepted in Hong Kong for official use. For official documents for the company for International use outside of Hong Kong, then an apostille document would be required. The documents can be certified by a Hong Kong Certified Public Accountant (CPA), HK Solicitor or notary public.
The certified copies will bear the date and signature of the certifying party, as well as stating that this is the certified true copy of the document. Normally these certified copies would be valid from 3 to 6 months after the specified date of certification, so it is often requested around the time of use for these documents, and not in advance.
