I charge a minimum of £60 for a notarial act. This fee would be charged for a simple matter such as certifying a passport or a one page letter. If there is more than one document or the matter is more complex then my fee would increase.
My fees are subject to VAT.
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.
If a document requires legalisation then a further fee is applicable. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) charge £30 for legalising a document. The FCO also charge a postage fee for returning the document. This is £6 for addresses in the UK, £14.50 for addresses in Europe and £25 for elsewhere in the world.
The FCO offer a Premium Service in London which allows the documents to be legalised the same day. They charge £75 for this service.
Some countires require legalisation by the FCO and their own embassy or consulate as well. Please see the Legalisation section on the right for more information in this regard.
