The notaries of the Klaipeda First Notary’s Office perform the following notarial acts:

Protesting of bills of exchange and checks

Bill of exchange is a security drawn up following the procedure laid down and under which the person issuing it unconditionally undertakes to pay a certain amount of money, directly or indirectly, to a person indicated in a bill of exchange or orders other person to do that.

Check is a payment document drawn up under the procedure provided for in the laws by which a person issuing the check orders the bank, without any conditions, to pay the amount of money specified in the check to a person indicated in the check or a person presenting it.

Non-acceptance or non-payment of a bill of exchange or non-payment of a check must be confirmed by an official act – protest regarding refusal to accept or pay. Bills of exchange and checks for protest are submitted by the holders thereof or persons authorised by them. The notary shall formalise protests of bills of exchange and checks under the procedure provided for in legislation at a specified time.
