Payment for notary public services is due on request, which is generally at the time of the appointment or on completion/collection of the notarised documents.
Once you make payment for our notary public services, we will issue a tax invoice/receipt and send it to you by email within 5 business days from your appointment. If you want the tax invoice to be issued to someone else (ie, company name), please advise us at the time of payment.
