Under the Anti Money Laundering Regulations we are legally required to ‘know your customer’. Therefore we ask all of our customers with regular services to register and identify themselves to us. You can register with via your online account or by completing a Client Registration Form.
By completing the online account information or the Client Registration form you will tell us who you are and where you live. If we are supplying the service to a business it also tells us about other people connected to the business so we know who else we need to identify. We will then compare the details supplied on the form against any available public registers to check the details match. For example, for a UK limited company the information supplied should match the directors, shareholders and PSC’s listed on Companies House records.
Supplying the information online or via the form also confirms a client accepts our terms and conditions and authorises us to carry out a ‘soft footprint’ search to further verify identities if required. Soft footprint searches are not credit checks and have no impact on a persons credit score.
