For corporate/business clients, notaries will (in addition to checking your personal identity) need to establish that the company or organisation which you represent actually exists and in many cases that you are authorised to represent that company or organisation. In the case of companies or organisations based in the United Kingdom, the notary will generally conduct his own checks to satisfy himself that the company or organisation exists. In some cases (particularly for companies or organisations established overseas) the notary public may ask you to produce certain documents. These might include:

  • Certificate of incorporation

  • Extract from the company register

  • Certificate of Good Standing

  • Latest report and audited accounts

  • Up to date certified copy of partnership agreement

​​

  • Constitutional documents (e.g. memorandum and articles of association)

  • Power of Attorney

  • Board Resolutions

  • Authorised signatory authority 

Your notary will be happy to advise exactly what will be required in any particular case.  Additional information may be required when we are acting for business clients. This is to ensure that a company check can be performed.
