COMMISSIONERS FOR OATHS

Commissioners for Oaths are individuals  appointed by the Senate of the Singapore Academy of Law, empowered to administer oaths and affirmations.

You would need the services of a Commissioner if you are signing an affidavit, a statutory declaration or if you are applying to be appointed as an executor or administrator of the estate of a deceased person. The Commissioner will verify your identity against the particulars in the document, check with you that you have read the document and understand the contents, administer the oath or affirmation and witness your signature.

Documents witnessed by a Commissioner for Oaths can only be used within Singapore. Documents for use outside of Singapore need to be signed before a Notary Public.

At Crossbows, you don’t just get a Commissioner for Oaths, you get Commissioners for Oaths. All 4 partners are Commissioners for Oaths and one of us will be able to assist you when you need it. 

NOTARY PUBLIC

 A Notary is a lawyer and an Officer of the Court, appointed by the Singapore Academy of Law for the purpose of witnessing, attesting and certifying documents for use in a another country/jurisdiction. Our Notary can:

  • Certify a document to be a true and correct copy of the original;
  • Certify a document to be an original document;
  • Witness the signing of documents; and
  • Administer Oaths and Declarations for use in proceedings in other jurisdictions.

The range of documents that can be witnessed is unlimited and can include:

  • Sale and purchase agreements [of immovable and movable properties]
  • Wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Affidavits and Statutory Declarations [and the right to administer Oaths in the course of doing so]
  • Commercial contracts and agreements
  • Any documents pertaining to commercial entities

Similarly, the range of documents that can be certified is wide and can include:

  • Educational certificates
  • Testimonials
  • Marriage certificates
  • Birth certificates
  • Death certificates
  • Passports and other identification documents
  • ACRA business profiles
  • Any documents that we personally download from ACRA

Once a document has been certified or witnessed, a Notarial Certificate is then prepared and the document is attached to this Certificate. The Notarization process ends here in most cases. However, in some cases, you might be asked to have your document ‘legalised’.
