General non-enduring power of attorney


A general non-enduring power of attorney authorises a person or persons to act on your behalf in relation to your financial and personal matters for a specified period of time. For example, if you need another person to run your business while you are overseas.

The authority ends at the date or occasion specified in the power of attorney, or once revoked by you.

You may wish to seek legal advice before entering into a non-enduring power of attorney.

A general non-enduring power of attorney is not for future planning. A general non-enduring power of attorney does not operate if you no longer have decision-making capacity, and the attorney cannot make decisions during this time.
