I understand the need to establish a fixed price rate that covers for all kind of services rendered. The fees are clear, reasonably competitive and can certainly give my client value for money. My fees are charged based on hourly rate £250 (incl VAT) with minimum fee £85 (incl. VAT) for notarising a simple document such as copy of passport/ID, one page document, police certificate, degree certificates child travel consent letter. I will normally give you a fixed fee before I commence any notary work. If this is not possible because the work required is particularly complex then I will inform you of my fee structure in advance. It would be my pleasure to negotiate and determine a specific price for peculiar situations that our fee guide does not cover for. In cases where several documents are going to be attended to, you will get a discount.
Payment can be made by cash, card or bank transfer.
You are responsible for all disbursements which we make on your behalf to Third parties such as costs to check the authenticity of original documents, Companies House search fees, courier charges, royal mail costs, Foreign Office apostille, Consulates fees, translators’ fees and costs of other third-parties.
