Taking an Affirmation, Affidavit or Statutory Declaration
Any Exhibit $250
Affixing of Apostille
Any other Notarial Act(s)
According to time spent
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.
The fee guide is based on an hourly charging rate of HK$4,000 and any other work not covered above should be charged by reference to this minimum rate. Disbursements or other out-of-pocket expenses will be charged separately.
It is not possible to lay down a precise scale of fees because each notarial act will differ depending upon the circumstances, whether any particular expertise is required or involves substantial complexity or value.
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.
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 regulatory work, which is covered by the fees charged.
The recommended minimum fee guide will be revised from time to time and published by the Society.
