Many British companies have found that they need to have a foothold in Ireland to facilitate their European trade. A director of a company in Ireland will need to lodge his details with the CRO. A number of options are available to a person registering with the CRO and one is to rely on a VIF. The CRO requires that the director declare certain information about himself to a notary public and that that information be recorded on a VIF and submitted to the CRO in Dublin. As a notary public offering remote notarisation (sometimes called enotarisation), I have a process by which I may assist individuals with signing a VIF and do so remotely. This is a highly convenient way of achieving the goal of submitting the information to the CRO without a director having to take too much time out of his busy schedule to sign the VIF. Recently, I helped a UK based company in just this way. The company was too far away from me to make it practicable for the director to sign the VIF face to face in my presence. Hence, I put in place my enotarisation procedure and we made it happen remotely.
