- Notary Public Services for Businesses in Oxford

If your business is engaged in overseas activities, you may need the services of a notary public at some stage. We have worked with a wide range of industries including technology, aerospace, transportation, retail, car manufacturers and shipping companies. Some of our key services include:

1. Notarising documents for professions and their clients, including accountants, doctors and other health professionals, engineers, insolvency practitioners, patent and trade mark attorneys and solicitors.

2. Legalising Documents. Many countries require that notarised documents are also “legalised” by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and/or the country’s embassy, or consulate. We can arrange legalisation of your documents by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and by a country’s embassy, or consulate if this needed. We have in-depth knowledge of the processes involved in document legalisation.

3. Translations into another language. If we receive documents in a foreign language we make sure that the client understands the meaning and the effect of the document. Therefore, it may be necessary to get the document translated. It may also be necessary that the document is translated into the language where the document is to be used. We can arrange for this too.

In addition to these notarial services, we can prepare documents for your business from scratch. These include powers of attorney, company resolutions and statutory declarations. We can also review documents which have been prepared already and advise on any changes are required.

We have a wealth of experience in resolving complex commercial Notary issues and we can ensure that you comply with the law.

Preparing to meet with your notary

Each circumstance will be different, but you should allow up to an hour for your visit. An appointment typically takes between 15-30 minutes depending on how many documents need to be notarised.  The notary will be able to advise you on what to bring to the meeting and how to prepare in advance.

  • Read all the documents that you have been sent and make sure that you understand what they mean
  • Bring proof of identity to the meeting e.g. passport, national identity card, armed forces pass or a photo driving licence 
  • Bring proof of residence e.g. a utility bill or bank/building society bill. These should not be more than 3 months old
  • Businesses may need to bring additional documents, but we can advise you prior to the meeting
  • Please don’t rush to sign any documents before the appointment as the notary public may need to make sure that you understand the document/s and may need to witness your signature

Notary public in Oxford - work examples

Our notary public team can notarise documents as well as provide legalisation and translation services in Oxford and surrounding areas. Some of our recent work includes: 

  •  Preparing a power of attorney for a client relating to a sale of property in India. Preparing the document in line with our client’s instructions and then notarising it and arranging apostille so that it would be accepted in India
  • Notarising powers of authority and other delegation of authority documents for a commercial client appointing lawyers and advisers to help with establishing a branch of their business in Spain
  • Certifying the authenticity of educational certificates for a client who was planning to go and work overseas. The requirement for certifying the educational certificate was a pre-requisite for the client receiving their formal offer of employment and for their work visa to be granted
  • Notarising sworn affidavits for use by one of our commercial clients as part of their application for a sponsorship licence
  • Notarising powers of attorney for a UK director of a company looking to do business in the UAE. The client had been struggling to find a notary that could get the documents notarised and legalised in time for an end of month deadline. Due to our regular working relationship with the British Arab Chamber, we were able to get this turned around within the deadline
