Why do we need your Personal Information?
KYC, or “Know Your Customer,” is a process of collecting and verifying certain personal information in order to confirm the identity of an individual or organization. The key information required in a KYC document will vary depending on the specific laws and regulations of the country or region in which the business operates. However, there are several types of information that are typically included in a KYC document.
- Personal identification information: This includes basic personal information such as name, date of birth, address, and contact information. This information is used to confirm the identity of the individual or organization.
- Government-issued ID: This includes a government-issued identification document such as a passport, national ID card, or driver’s license. This information is used to confirm the identity of the individual or organization and to ensure that the document is valid and not a forgery.
- Proof of address: This may include a utility bill, bank statement, or other official documents that show the individual’s or organization’s current address. This information is used to confirm the address provided by the individual or organization and to ensure that it is a legitimate address.
- Financial information: This may include information about the individual’s or organization’s financial situation, such as income, assets, and liabilities. This information is used to assess the customer’s financial situation and to identify any potential risks.
- Business information: In the case of an organization, it may include information about the business such as registration number, business address, type of business, and beneficial ownership details.
- Beneficial ownership information: Information about the individuals or entities that ultimately own or control the account, including their names, addresses, and identification numbers.
