Commercial Documents

Overview and Examples

There are a huge variety of reasons why businesses will need a Notary Public to assist them in improving their business.

Since Brexit, documentation and regulations that were common to EU member States are now not recognised and increasingly this is causing companies to take steps to ensure that their products and services can still be accessed, used and validated within the EU. 

Businesses dealing with the clients or entities abroad will often need to appoint an agent and that appointment will, in most cases, require the input of a Notary Public.

A Company will normally need to pass a resolution to embark upon the appointment of a foreign agent or to transact outside of England and Wales. A copy of the resolution is therefore required where a Company makes that decision.

Simon will also need to meet with a suitably qualified representative of the Company, normally a director. Simon will need to establish that they have authority to undertake the transaction that is being contemplated. 

Companies will need to establish their identity to the satisfaction of a foreign jurisdiction and this again is a service that Simon can assist with. 

Commercial Documents Can Include:

  • Certificates of good standing.

  • Certificate of Incorporation.

  • Powers of Attorney.

  • Agency documentation.

  • Identification of directors.


Most countries will require any document signed in England in front of a notary to also be Legalised. This involves the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office putting a stamp on the document we complete. It is advisable that as much time as possible is allowed to achieve the result for you.

What to bring to the appointment

  1. Your valid passport and a copy of the photo page.

  2. Evidence of your address, preferably your driving licence or utility bill, bank statement etc and a copy.

  3. The document(s) that needs to be notarised.
