Our obligation requires us to obtain information that may include:
- Details of your business or employment
- Copies of recent and current financial statements
- Details of the relationships between signatories and any underlying beneficial owner
- The expected level and type of activity that will take
The Money Laundering Regulations also require us to check your identity and establish the source of funds in any entity or associate entity under our engagement.
In general, your identity is made up both of your name and current address and, thus, a combination of checks need to be carried out. Accordingly, for all clients we need to see one item from list A and one item from list B.
We need to see satisfactory identification for each client, that is each Director, Shareholder, Sole Trader or Individual for whom we are performing a service, or who will derive a benefit.
We will need to take photocopies of the items provided and certify them as being true and correct. In the event of you being unable to provide such items or you not being a UK resident then please contact us as soon as possible to discuss the matter further.
