Nitty-gritty on Statutory Declaration

by Notary Public Services Notary Public Services
To put it in definitive terms, a statutory declaration is considered to be a statement of facts which you declare effectively to be true where the document has to be signed in the presence of a solicitor or notary public or also a commissioner of oaths. The statutory declaration document can be used as evidence. There are many reasons as to why you might need a statutory declaration, i.e. for financial matters, to confirm the personal details, to provide as evidence for sick leave or to also provide evidence for financial matters. It should be noted that if an individual makes this statement on untrue grounds then they can be charged with an offence.

On general grounds, the statutory declaration is used for legal requirements or also for regulations when any other evidence is absent. There are many more instances as to how the statutory declaration can be made use of like:

• It is used by financial institutions and it is for transferring money to people which have been required legally and it is used to deal with the estate of a deceased person.
• For those who want to change their name, they can use this document as a method of legally adopting the new name so that the new name can be used on driving licenses or passports.
• If the company is going into voluntary liquidation then the document can be used by the company directors to declare their solvency.
• If there is any documentary evidence that is unavailable then the statutory declaration can be used for declaration of nationality or identity or marital status
• For the patent application, the document can be used as the declaration statement of the original item.
• In export and import of goods, it is used for affirming the nature of goods.

What are the types of statutory declarations?

There are 2 types of statutory declarations i.e. the Commonwealth and the state and territory. The commonwealth statutory declaration is needed if your issue is related to the commonwealth or smaller territories or the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The commonwealth statutory declaration can be made by retirees, minors, or the officeholders.

To receive the statutory declaration for the state or territory,you can research online for the statutory declarations specified in your state or territory or you can also search online for the Department of Justice or the Attorney General, which is in your state or territory.

The claims made in the statutory declaration must be true because if a false statement is made purposely, then the individual can be charged with a criminal offence. The person can be imprisoned for up to 4 years. A statutory declaration is considered to be invalid if the one who witnessed the document is not considered to be an authorised witness.
