Original or Copy?

It is recommended that the apostille is issued to the original document to verify the signature of the issuing HMRC official.

If necessary, it is possible for a copy of this document to be solicitor certified and issued with the apostille. However, you should always check with the authority requesting your document to find out if they would accept a copy.

Where can you obtain a certificate of residence?

The confirmation of residence certificate is a government issued document. You need to contact HMRC directly to apply for this.

Alternative documents may used as a substitute, or in addition to, the confirmation of residence. An example of this would be a P60 which would provide evidence of your tax contributions. It is advisable to clarify exactly which documents are required with the requesting authority before proceeding.
