  • a copy of the certificate of registration issued by Companies House and
  • a certificate confirming that:
    • the certified copy charge lodged for registration is a certified copy of the charge filed with Companies House (if a redacted copy was sent to Companies House, certify that the charge is a certified copy of the original charge of which a redacted copy was filed under s859G of Companies Act 2006), and
