Notarisation of Incorporation Documents
By signing and sealing a document, a notary verifies the authenticity of the facts set out in that document. If the appearer is acting on behalf of a limited company under some form of authority, the notary must verify that authority. Company search should be undertaken to see the appearer is an office holder as he claims. The primary source for the verification of the attributes that identify a company registered under the Companies Acts is the Company Register itself. As notary, we keep a record of the search and issue a certificate in accordance with the result such search.
Media companies and production houses
As we are located in Covent Garden, a stone’s throw from Soho where TV and movie companies set up their headquarters, we have the honour to serve a number of international movie stars, film directors, script writers and TV producers who require us to notarise their signatures on international agreements in relation to assignment of rights or intellectual properties etc.
Notarised translation for corporate clients
To verify that the appearer has the will to enter a transaction a notary must verify that he has sufficient understanding of the content and effect of the document as well as the law of the foreign country. For this purpose, corporate documents in foreign language have to be translated into language the parties can fully understand so that the notary can verify that the client has enough comprehension to form the intention to be bound.
