All formation agents (that's us and our competitors) have a legal obligation to check Proof of ID and Proof of Address documents for all officers (including account holders, directors and PSCs) who use our services. This is to ensure we comply with 'Anti-Money Laundering' (AML) regulations and 'Know Your Customer' (KYC) requirements.
With the help of Credas' digital ID software, our free online ID check is very simple to complete. You will just require:
* Government-issued photo ID, i.e. passport or driving licence (not expired)
* Proof of residential address issued with the last 3 months / annual statement, i.e. bank statement, utility bill, etc
* A device with the ability to take a live selfie such as a webcam or camera phone.
During the online ID verification, Credas' facial recognition technology will check if you are present and determine whether your face (selfie) matches the photo on your ID.
