The most frequent documents needing to be notarised on behalf of companies and individuals are Powers of Attorney. A power of attorney is a written authorisation to represent or act on another’s behalf in private affairs, business, or some other legal matter. The person authorising the other to act is the principal, grantor, or donor (of the power), and the one authorised to act is the agent or done.
“Legalisation is the process whereby an Apostille certificate is affixed to UK issued documents by The Foreign and Commonwealth Office). The FCO will check the document has been issued by a UK public notary/official and verify whether the signature, stamp or seal is genuine.”
