Notes

(a) The above fees represent a guide only, bearing in mind the years of practice required before a Solicitor may apply to become a Notary Public and the requirement to pass independent examinations and the significant years of practice of most Notaries Public.
(b) It is not possible to lay down a precise scale of fees because each notarial act will differ depending upon the circumstances, including the time spent as well as whether any particular expertise is required or involves substantial complexity or value. Disbursements or other out-of-pocket expenses will be charged in addition.
(c) The requirement of legalisation or the affixing of an Apostille involves work undertaken by outside parties which are not within the control of the Notary Public in view of timing or any requirements of such parties.
(d) Apart from the notarial work undertaken, Notaries Public have a statutory responsibility to prepare and maintain a Register of all notarial acts as well as complying with other legal or regulatory requirements, which is covered by the fees charged.
(e) The recommended minimum fee guide will be revised from time to time and published by the Society.
