My pricing will always consist of my fee (which will vary according to the type and number of your documents) plus the additional costs I will incur on your behalf.
The additional costs you may have to pay (if these things are needed by your recipient) are: a UK apostille - for a standard 2-3 day turnaround, the additional cost organised through me will be £42; for a same-day apostille, the additional cost will be £99; speed of service is a function of the postal service; for a standard service, I always recommend next-day guaranteed delivery by 1pm ; an "ordinary" sized Royal Mail delivery costs £6.85 out and £10 return; sometimes, you may want a faster service (for example, if buying a same-day apostille) and the postage for that is about £23 for 9am next-day delivery (or about £26 with £1000 insurance for your document).
You can see that the more urgent the need for your document, the more you will need to pay for the external costs (the apostille and the postage). My fee won't change according to your urgency.
Another cost can arise where the jurisdiction relevant to your document imposes additional requirements. For example, China and many Middle Eastern jurisdictions ask that your document also be legalised by their UK embassy. Each embassy charges a fee for its service that varies according to whether you are in individual or a company, the type of document and the speed of service required. Only a detailed examination of your requirements can allow me to give a quote on the costs of consular legalisation.
Bear in mind, that price may only be part of your decision making process. I pride myself on being available to speak to and meet with you evenings and weekendsto make it as easy as possible for you to fulfil your notarial requirements. Please get in touch if you wish to know more. I look forward to hearing from you.
