Corporate Notary work
As a business client, you may be trading with foreign countries, setting up a business abroad, buying or selling property or perhaps bringing or defending a court case in another country. You may therefore require the service of a notary public for some of the following:
- Certification of documents to open foreign bank accounts
- Notarisation of Companies House documents for overseas use
- Notarisation of commercial documents for use abroad
- International Affidavits, Statutory Declarations, Sworn Statements and Depositions
- Authenticating company and business documents and transactions, providing certificates as to the status of a company or the identity of its directors.
Apostille and Legalisation:
Many countries want documents to be countersigned by their London Embassies (legislation) and this will take several days unless you want to take them to the Embassy in person and wait in line. The fees and procedure for this vary widely but I should be able to give you a reasonably accurate idea of the time and cost.
You will normally need a certified translation of documents if the documents are required for official use abroad in a country where English is not the primary spoken language. Institutions such as universities, schools, insurance companies, government organisations can ask for the relevant documents to be translated and then notarised as being an accurate translation.
I work alongside certified translators to meet your translation needs for any notarial work. Please book and appointment for more information.
