Question: Does my signature need to be witnessed if I am signing a deed?Answer:
Yes, it usually does. If you are asking an individual to sign a deed then it is usually best practice for the individual signature to be witnessed by someone not a party to the deed. Most states and territories in Australia require the individuals’ signature to be witnessed. Therefore, it is better to meet the higher standard. If you are signing a deed in your capacity as a director of a company then you should comply with s127 of the Corporations Act 2011 (Cth).
