- Beneficial Ownership
Effective May 11, 2018, all banks will be subject to a new rule under the Bank Secrecy Act intended to assist the government and law enforcement in the ongoing fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism. When an account is opened on behalf of a business, or covered legal entity such as a corporation, a limited liability company, a general or limited partnership, or a business trust, we will be required to ask you for certain identifying information of the “beneficial owners” of the business, regardless of whether or not the beneficial owners are owners or signers of the account.
What does this mean for you and your business? Each time an account is opened, whether it be a new deposit account or a new loan, the bank will be required to ask you for identifying information on account owners as well as identification documentation for the beneficial owners of the business. The rule defines a beneficial owner as:
- EACH individual that has 25% or more of the equity interest in the business; and
- ONE individual that has the authority to exercise control of the legal entity (such as a CEO, executive officer, or treasurer)
What type of identifying information will be requested? You will be required to provide the following documentation and to certify that this information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge:
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number
- Proof of Identity (for example, a copy of the individual’s Driver’s License or Passport)
If your business has Beneficial Owners as described above who are not currently account owners, we recommend that you obtain this information and keep it current and available to present each time you come in to establish a new account or update an existing account.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
