If you are working overseas or sending staff abroad on business, or if you have an overseas workforce, you will require a Notary Public to verify and authenticate a number of your legal documents.
You may also need similarly verified papers if you are bringing employees into the UK.
These may include –
Passports/Visas – to ensure you have appropriate and up to date documents which enable you and your employees to cross borders for business purposes
Legal protection – you’ll want to be sure that you have appropriate legal protection for you and your workforce
Qualifications – employers in other countries will need to be able to confirm UK academic and professional qualifications
Power of Attorney – giving legal authority to your employee or agent overseas when they undertake legal actions in your name
Company records authenticated – when you’re setting up a subsidiary company or agreeing contracts in another country
Import/Export – when you need certification for HMRC and the equivalent authorities in the country you’re working with
Individuals – when you need legal documents or identity papers regarding temporary or permanent immigration and emigration
Properties: leases and purchases – when paperwork needs to be ratified for overseas property/land purchases, lease agreements and mortgages (for example, when you are setting up a new office or production unit)
New bank accounts – when you need to open new accounts and undertake other overseas financial transactions (for example, when you are setting up a new overseas trade relationship).
For all of the above, as a Notary Public, I can also attend to legalisation of the document by way of the Foreign Office Apostille and Embassy certification; if that is required by the foreign jurisdiction.
