A statutory declaration is a formal statement of fact that is signed in the presence of either a solicitor, magistrate, notary public, or commissioner for oaths.
It is a document where the declarant signatory confirms that something is true to the best of their knowledge.
Statutory Declarations are governed by the Statutory Declarations Act 1835, and must contain the following prescribed wording:-
“I (name) do solemnly and sincerely declare, that/as follows.. .. .. .. and I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true, and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declarations Act 1835.”
These statements are used as evidence in a wide variety of legal exercises including but not limited to:-
- Declaring a Change of Name
- Declaring your company's solvency
- Declaring items for import and export
