Using a Power of Attorney (POA) to allow another person to act on your behalf can be useful, in case of illness, or when you are being out of the country. In such cases, an agent is appointed to sign legal or financial documents on the principal's behalf.
How to write a Power Of Attorney (POA)?
Important suggestions to follow when writing a POA or Authorization letter:
- Keep the letter precise and short: the longer the letter, the more it potentially contains irrelevant information.
- Specify the duties of the responsible person: be specific and unambiguous about the duties granted to the person.
- Provide time duration and dates of authorization: write the duration, the start and end date of this authorization to avoid issues and misconceptions.
- Provide proper reason for authorization: provide specific reasons for authorization and avoid any sort of ambiguities, like illness, being abroad ,etc.
- Write if there are some sort of restrictions: there can be conditions or certain areas about which you do not want to provide authorization to the person.
- End the letter with a proper conclusion: Make sure to leave some space to add the signature on the hardcopy letter or maybe scan your signature and insert them in the document.
