Verifying your Business Account (UK)

For companies based in the UK we will require some extra documentation based around the structure of your company and its details.

What type of business are you verifying?

Limited Companies
  • A UK business registration number. This must have been issued by Companies House.
  • A company bank statement displaying company name and establishes cash flow of the company
  • Photo identification for all beneficial owners and two directors of the business (a beneficial owner is defined as anyone who holds a shareholding of more than 25%) 
  • Address documents (a utility bill or bank statement) for all beneficial owners and two directors of the business (a beneficial owner is defined as anyone who holds a shareholding of more than 25%)
  • A brief description of business activity and intended purpose for transfers
  • A web address for your website (if available)

Please Note

If more than 25% of your businesses shares are owned by another company, we will also need to complete business verification for that company.

If your shares are partially or fully held by a trust, unfortunately we will be unable to process transfers on behalf of your company.

Sole Traders
  • A copy of your self assessment tax return showing you are self employed
  • A business bank statement showing your trading name
  • Details of VAT registration (if applicable)
  • Invoices from a supplier to the sole trader
  • Letter from an accountant
  • A web address for your website (if available)
  • A few sentences describing your business activities and the nature of your transfers and relationship with the recipient

Not registering on behalf of a company?

If you are not registering as a business, you will need to meet the personal verification requirements.
