Business Transactions in China

With large number of Australian businesses trading with and operating in China, there is more need than ever before for notarial services to aid trade and business transactions between the two countries. If you have dealings with China on a professional level, your notary public can help in a number of ways to ensure that your business transactions in China go smoothly. The most common are outlined below:

Registering a representative office in China

Applications to register an office in China require a number of legal documents, all of which have to be notarized in order for them to be legally recognized. Documents must also be authenticated by DFAT and legalized by the Chinese consulate, as China is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. Your notary public can assist you with every step of the process to ensure that registering your office in China goes as smoothly as possible.

Giving someone Power of Attorney for Property transactions

If you are conducting property transactions in China you may well find it easier to appoint a Power of Attorney who can navigate the legal processes and attend to important matters there for you. If this is the case, your notary can assist you through the entire process, advising you on exactly what you need to provide and ensuring your chosen person can operate on your behalf without any complications.

If required, we can also provide you with the necessary Power of Attorney forms for China.
