Identity checks for AML

Price Plan
Accounts Pro

As part of the 2017 Money Laundering Regulations, we need to verify the identity of key people involved in your property portfolio or business.

What's the process?

To validate identities we use a secure, third party provider, Yoti. We'll email a unique link to everyone we need to identify.

To complete these checks, you'll need:

  • A phone or laptop with a camera to take a photo of yourself - say cheese!

  • Proof of identity, e.g. a driver's licence or passport

  • Proof of address, e.g. a recent utility bill (dated in the last 3 months)

  • About 5 minutes of your time

For more information on which ID documents are accepted, read Yoti's help article.

Who needs verifying?

We're required to identify the following people:

  1. All directors of a company

  2. Any shareholders that hold 25% or more shares in your company

  3. All People of Significant Control or Beneficial Owners

What next?

Once everyone involved has completed the process, we'll be automatically notified of the outcome and we'll be in touch with next steps.

Before we can start ...

Please note, we cannot incorporate your company, start work or give you access to your software until we've successfully identified everyone involved with your portfolio.
