Company Formation Identity
To comply with Money Laundering regulations, we are required to verify the identity of our clients by conducting Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks.
AML checks are required under the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 in an effort to fight fraud and money laundering.
What is required?
Upon purchasing our services, we will ask for two forms of identification for anyone named as a director, secretary, shareholder or PSC. Every individual will need to provide photographic ID and proof of residential address. Documents must be no older than 3 months and contain your current address. Documents with expiry dates, e.g., a passport, should not be expired.
A full list of accepted documents can be found here.
How do I provide my ID?
A member of our team will contact you to request your identification and provide you with a secure upload link. Our AML team will review your documents and confirm that the identity check has been successfully completed, or request for further information if required.
If you fail to provide accepted forms of ID or we are unable to verify your identity, we will be unable to provide services to you. Any services purchased will be refunded to you.
If you have any questions regarding the AML check or the documentation, please contact our friendly team today.
“Very helpful and would recommend to anyone who wants to start a new business. Cannot do enough and keep you updated.”
