What does a Notary Public do?
A Notary will examine and authenticate the necessary documents, as well as witnessing and/or securing necessary certified copies. A notarised document will bear the notary’s signature and official seal.
Commonly notarised documents include company documents, including certificates of incorporation, memorandums and articles of association, annual returns, board minutes, board resolutions and share certificates. We also notarise other documents including powers of attorney, statutory declarations, affidavits, witness statements, trademark and patent applications and registrations, and letters.
Legalisation is where a country requires the signature and seal of the Notary to be authenticated by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and in some cases the relevant Foreign Embassy. In some cases, a certificate from the FCO called an apostille will suffice.
We provide a comprehensive legalisation service for our clients where required. These can be dealt with quickly using our London agent’s expedited service in cases of urgency.
