Notary services – Business and Personal

A Notary Public is internationally recognised and authorised to prepare and certify the signing of various documents. It is their job to authenticate who you are and what is stated in the document. They can bridge the gap between UK law and overseas law by ensuring that legal documents you rely upon are checked, verified and suitable for your needs.

If you need a document authenticating so it can be used overseas you will usually require the services of a notary.

It is a notary’s role to check all legal documentation and certify that it is suitable for use abroad.  They will be checking the validity of the document and the identity, capacity and whether the person requesting the document is authorised to do so.

Often the signature of the person who has notarised the document and their seal will need to be certified by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (known as an Apostille); this is a service we can also offer.

You have the same responsibilities as a full-time in-house Transport Manager however you might only be contracted for a handful of hours a week in the case of a single vehicle operator. Even for a diligent External Transport Manager it can be difficult to exercise continuous and effective control when you may only see the vehicles you are responsible for a few hours a week.

This guide is intended to be a short, no-nonsense crib sheet for External Transport Managers. It is by no means comprehensive, but it does flag up some of the more common issues that can ultimately lead to problems with the Traffic Commissioner.
