How to conduct a KYB check?
What is KYB?
Companies that deal with money transfer are required to perform a Know Your Business (KYB) check. This check includes verification of the company registration, business license updates, and the direct and indirect owner/s of the company with whom you are conducting business.
Failing to carry out Know Your Business (KYB) Checks can increase your exposure to being used for money laundering and terrorism financing activities
If Know Your Business (KYB) checks are not performed, it may at any point, damage your brand integrity and profit baseline and subject you to penalties for non-compliance.

Why is it important to conduct a Know Your Business (KYB) check?
It is important to conduct a KYB check to help you identify the legitimacy of the business you are choosing to interact with. Failure to identify shell or fraudulent companies may lead to your business being exposed to money laundering and terrorism financing activities.
To help combat money laundering and terrorism financing activities, many regulatory bodies around the world have made KYB checks mandatory for reporting entities. Failure to comply with regulations will result in significant penalties, upheld by regulatory bodies, and the potential to lose all rights to conduct business within the region.
NameScan can help you comply with anti money laundering and counter terrorism financing regulations in various jurisdictions, helping you manage your risk and adherence to legislation within your jurisdiction.
