General power of attorney (PA001)

If you, or a company, need to have another person or persons, company or firm to manage your affairs or the affairs of the company for a limited period of time, a general power of attorney can be used to do so. An individual may want to use a general power of attorney for a number of reasons - for example, they might be leaving the country for a period of time and need someone else to manage their affairs while they are gone. The person whom you (the 'donor') appoint to manage your affairs is known as your 'attorney'. Your attorney will be able to do anything on your behalf which he/she can legally do as an attorney. The power of attorney may be specific in that it limits the appointed attorney to performing specific tasks or it can be general allowing the attorney to do almost anything that you yourself could do. This document is suitable for use by both individuals and companies.
