Things you need to know about Special Power of Attorney to transact and deal with the Bureau of Internal Revenue.


1. What is a Special Power of Attorney? 

A Special Power of Attorney allows a person (the “agent”) to act and make decisions on another person’s behalf (the “principal”).  The agent is granted specific and limited powers to handle the principal’s affairs (i.e. property, financial, legal).

With Legal Tree you can create a Special Power of Attorney covering a broad range of powers and customize them depending on your situation.


2. When do you need a Special Power of Attorney?

A Special Power of Attorney is necessary if you wish to appoint another person to act and make decisions on your behalf.  

A Special Power of Attorney is normally executed when the principal is unable to manage his affairs & decide on his own and will need an agent to act on his behalf.   However, it may also be executed even if the principal is not incapacitated and just wishes to appoint an agent to manage his affairs.


3. How can a Special Power of Attorney protect you?

A Special Power of Attorney protects you by ensuring that your property, financial, legal and other matters are taken cared of even if you are incapacitated and unable to decide.  It ensures continuity in the management of your affairs even if something were to happen to you.  


4. What is the difference between a Special Power of Attorney and a General Power of Attorney?

Both powers of attorney are used to appoint an agent to act on the principal’s behalf.  However, they are different in terms of the number of powers granted.  A General Power of Attorney is used to grant the agent broad powers to handle the principal’s affairs.  On the other hand, a Special Power of Attorney is used to grant the agent only limited or specific powers.  


5. What information do you need to create a Special Power of Attorney?

To create your Special Power of Attorney you’ll need the following minimum information:

  1. The type of principal (i.e. individual or business) as well as name and details (i.e. nationality and address)
