Authorised Signatory

An authorised signatory is a person who has been authorised by a company to sign legal documents on its behalf. This could include contracts, leases, applications and other legal documents. Authorised signatories usually have to go through a vetting process before they are given this authority, and they are typically senior members of staff or directors.

The role of an authorised signatory is important because they are the only people who can legally bind the company to agreements. This means that they need to be trustworthy and have a good understanding of the company’s business. It is also important that authorised signatories keep up to date with any changes to the law that could affect the documents they are signing.
