Notary Services

If your business is required to deal with foreign documentation or wants to operate overseas, you will need the services of a Notary Public – a legal professional authorised to prepare, witness and authenticate foreign legal documents.

A notary’s seal and signature is widely accepted as confirmation of the authenticity and legality of a business document that is to be used outside of the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

How can our Notaries help your business?

Notarisation is often required for international commercial documents. In such cases we need to verify the authority of the company, its directors or other authorised personnel before authenticating the relevant document.

Our Notaries can deal with a wide range of business documents including:

  1. Corporate Powers of Attorney for use overseas
  2. Certificates of incorporation or articles of association for UK companies
  3. Certificates of good standing
  4. Identification documents of directors and other company personnel
  5. Execution of commercial contracts for international use
  6. Affidavits, sworn declarations, witness statements and statutory declarations
  7. Documentation relating to overseas commercial property transactions
  8. Documents relating to Intellectual property matters
  9. Certified copies of company administration documents
  10. Arranging for documents to be legalised at foreign embassies, or obtaining an “Apostille” from the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office

Our fees

Our fees for many notarial matters are fixed although some are calculated by reference to the time spent. We will happily provide you with a quote for the provision of our services before starting work.


The notarial practice is insured through the policy of professional indemnity maintained by Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP and provides cover of at least £1,000,000 per claim.


In the unlikely event you may have concerns about our service please raise it with us in the first instance. Should we not be able to resolve it the Notaries Society provides a complaints resolution service. Details will be provided upon our instruction.
