The Electronic Transactions Amendment (COVID-19 Witnessing of Documents) Regulation 2020 under the Electronic Transactions Act 2000 (NSW) has now been enacted. This means that B+A can now witness our clients’ documents by audio visual link., without the need of having to see our clients in person. The type of documents that are covered by this amendment include:
- a will
- a power of attorney or enduring power of attorney
- a deed or agreement
- an enduring guardianship appointment
- an affidavit, including an annexure or exhibit to the affidavit
- a statutory declaration
If you require the witnessing of any documents, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will organise a conference scheduled via video call.
