About the Seminar:

Because of globalization of businesses, the number of company documents for overseas use is increasing rapidly. Often these documents need to be witnessed or certified by Hong Kong Notaries Public.

Hong Kong Notaries Public belong to one of the 3 branches of the legal profession in Hong Kong. They witness, certify and authenticate documents going abroad to facilitate business globalization or fulfil personal requirements.

As for local dimension, notarial instruments now have evidential status here in Hong Kong Courts by virtue of the recent legislation of the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance 2014. Hong Kong Notaries Public therefore play a role in the Administration of Justice.

As their corporate clients will inevitably come across this subject, Accountants & Auditors will find this topic relevant and helpful. It is therefore desirable for them to know this topic.

This course aims to provide an insight into and demonstrate notarial services using real World examples, including those relevant to Accountants & Auditors.
