[quote=“Lee Kohl”]Thanks for letting me know about the links! Should be ok now.
The Power of Attorney must be signed by a company director or owner, and have the full name of the representative on it. Those two can be the same person.
Ideally it will be notarized in Taiwan by a Taiwanese notary, which means of course that the person signing has to be present in Taiwan for the notarization. That’s why it’s easiest if you are the company owner or one of the directors/officers/people with signing authority, whatever your country calls them.
A POA from overseas is fine too, but it will have to be legalized (I think) and translated into Chinese (for sure), possibly by a certified translator in the case that the original is not in English. So if you go through your friend’s company, they will have to sign it in front of a notary wherever they are, then have it legalized by their local TECO, and sent here. Note that person will also have to sign your employment contract for the CLA, employment certificate for the NIA, etc., so honestly it’s easier if you are your own boss.
LLC services commonly offer nominee shareholder, directors now - Can’t this make the notarizing process harder ? I guess your only option would be to use a POA in this case, and go through the bottom paragraph of the quoted below. Maybe it’s better to not use the nominee option if you want to create a rep office.
