Identification - One form of government issued photo ID. Accepted documents include a valid passport, driver's license, ID card or a visa document.

You can submit a secondary form of identification to help streamline your onboarding process if you wish! It is not mandatory but we might request a second form of ID at a later time.

Personal Details - Name, date of birth, SSN or TIN.

  • US Residents: a SSN is required.

  • Non-US Residents: a TIN is required or an alternative document such as your passport number and country of issuance.

Proof of Address - Accepted types of documents include:

  • Bank statement

  • Credit card statement

  • Government issued correspondence (ex: vehicle registration, etc)

  • Rent or lease agreement

  • Utility bill

Please note these should be addressed to the company/entity name you're applying for and issued in the last 90 days.

Company Formation Documents - This depends on your company entity type and can vary state to state. Within our application, we will specify the required documents based on your company entity type. To get an idea of the most common types of documents, please refer to some examples further below!

Company Financial Documents - Documents to confirm your company's proof of funds and taxation status.

Most Common Business Documents:

Articles of Incorporation - a document that establishes the existence of a corporation in the United States. For US corporations, these are filed with the Secretary of State.

Articles of Organization - a document required to form a limited liability company ("LLC") in many U.S. states. Some states refer to articles of organization as a certificate of organization or a certificate of formation. You can think of this document as a "birth certificate" for a LLC.

Business License - legal registration of your company that permits you to operate within your industry and jurisdiction.

Certificate of Partnership - a legal document filed with the state government to register a limited partnership.

Company Bylaws - detailed set of rules adopted by a corporation's board of directors after the company has been incorporated. Considered an important legal document for a corporation to have in place as it specifies the internal management structure and how the company will be run.

Operating Agreement - a key document used by limited liability companies to outline the business' financial and functional decisions including rules, regulations, and provisions.

Partnership Agreement - a contract between parties that binds their working relationship to specific terms and conditions. This often includes the percentages of ownership and distribution of profits and losses. It also entails a description of management powers and duties of each partner.

Trust Agreement - formal agreement through which a trustor vests the ownership rights to an asset(s) to one or more trustees for conservation and protection on behalf of one or more beneficiaries of the trust.

Based on your legal entity type, we may request additional documentation to complete our review. The USA Patriot Act requires us to be especially thorough during our review process. To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
