Expert Know Your Business (KYB) Services: Ensuring Corporate Compliance

What is Know Your Business (KYB) ?

Know Your Business (KYB) is not just a requirement but a crucial strategy to mitigate risks and ensure compliance. Our KYB services are designed to provide thorough business verification, helping you maintain the highest standards of corporate transparency and accountability.

What is KYB and Why is it Important?

Know Your Business (KYB) is a verification process that allows companies to verify the identity and legitimacy of other businesses they engage with. This process is essential for complying with anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and preventing fraud. KYB is crucial for maintaining operational integrity and safeguarding your business interests in increasingly interconnected markets.

Comprehensive KYB Verification Processes

Idenfo's comprehensive Know Your Business (KYB) processes include a variety of checks to ensure thorough vetting and compliance. Here’s a list of the services we provide:

Name Screening

  • Companies and Key Personnel: We screen the names of the company, its key directors, shareholders, and management.
  • Global List*: This screening involves checking against international sanction lists, politically exposed persons (PEP) lists, and enforcement lists to ensure there are no regulatory red flags.

Adverse Media Checks

  • Worldwide Coverage: We conduct adverse media checks that scan global news sources and databases for any negative press or potential risks associated with the company and its affiliates.
  • Continuous Monitoring: Our systems update in real-time, ensuring that the latest media information is always available.

Money Laundering Risk Assessment

  • Compliance Alignment: Our risk assessment process aligns with both global and national standards for anti-money laundering (AML) practices.

Record Keeping and Audit Logs

  • Customer Records: When you onboard a new customer, we maintain a comprehensive record of their information on your behalf.
  • Audit Logs: We also keep a full audit log of any actions you take, which can be crucial for compliance reviews and audits. This ensures transparency and traceability in all your transactions and interactions.

For KYB checks with companies based in the UK, we have an additional ‘Companies House’ integration which allows you to automatically pull Companies House data into the onboarding form, and utilize ‘red flags’ in Companies House alongside our own proprietary risk rating engine.
