Additional information

The Advocates act of 1972 provides guidelines for fees but are not always applied by lawyers as the fees are considered to be outdated. New regulation setting clear rules for fees is being passed but have not yet come into effect. The notary fees mentioned on this step are estimates based on current practice.

It is mandatory to notarize the articles and memorandum of association for authentication before submitting them to Business Registration Licencing Authority (BRELA).

Prior to hiring a public notary to certify documents, users are advised to verify with Tanganyika Law Society (TLS) whether the he/she is still authorized to practice.
