We provide a transparent and highly competitive pricing structure. We are confident that our rates offer customers the best priced premium service delivered with unrivalled efficiency. Our Notary Public will handle your requirements with the utmost priority.
Before we do any work for you, we will provide you with a detailed cost breakdown. We will advise you on the fees for notarisation, and if any additional services are needed such as legalisation, translation or document couriering we will provide a quote.
We charge notarial fees on a per document basis. On request, we will assess your notarial requirements and provide a fixed quote. For more complex certifications, we will charge according to the hourly rate of the instructed notary which will be advised at the outset.
In addition to notarial fees, we may charge for ancillary services such as arranging legalisations or translations, call out visits, document couriering and drafting. If applicable, these additional fees will be advised in our quote and may be based on a fixed fee or hourly rate basis depending on the service needed.
We do not charge VAT for our services.
Where we incur any costs from third parties, these fees will be passed directly on to you as disbursements. These disbursements include any fees charged by consulates and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office when legalising a document. We will inform you of likely disbursements when providing you with a quote. Please note that any consulate fee will be provided to you in good faith, however, consulates can change their fees and procedures without notice.
Where we can, we will help keep disbursement costs to a minimum. For example, if possible, we may suggest bundling your documents under fewer notarial certificates as this will result in fewer charges payable to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and, in most cases, any consulate.
Additional disbursements may include translation fees, Companies House fees, and fees charged by universities for verification. These fees will be advised to you at the outset and we will not incur any disbursements without your consent.
