Authority to Act

When authorities have been set up with an organisation they will allow you access to information and give you ability to perform some transactions for your clients. For more information on Authorities

Authority Letter

2Shakes creates signed letters of authority from your clients that can be shown to Banks, Insurance Companies and Utility companies. These letters provide validation that your client trusts you to act on their behalf.

Our Customers have found these letters to be valuable. However, we can not guarantee that they will always be accepted as each organisation will have its own unique policies and procedures.
