General Power of Attorney (Scotland)
This document lets you temporarily grant someone the authority to deal with your financial affairs.
This may be useful if, for example, you are out of the country for an extended period and need someone to manage your affairs while you are away.
General Power of Attorney is not suitable if you need someone to manage your affairs after you have lost the mental capacity to do so. In this case you should use our Continuing Power of Attorney or Welfare Power of Attorney.
There is no need to register a General Power of Attorney.
This document is suitable for use in Scotland only.
