To assist the U.S. government in its fight against financial criminal activity,
federal regulation requires certain financial institutions, escrow agents or
paymasters to secure, verify, and record information about the beneficial
owners of legal entities. Legal entities can be used to disguise involvement
in terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, corruption, fraud, and
other financial crimes. Requiring the disclosure of key individuals who own
or control a legal entity (i.e., the beneficial owners) helps law enforcement
investigate and prosecute those crimes. This, in turn, protects all parties and
entities involved in assuring the transaction is not fraudulent or illegitimate.
As such, the following are the documents or proof required of all parties,
individuals, and/or companies to submit in order for our firm to effectively
and efficiently provide Paymaster Services:
1. A copy of valid driver’s license, identity card and/or passport; 2. Complete
IRS form W-9 for U.S. citizens or companies; 3. Completed IRS form W-8BEN
for foreign individuals or companies; 4. Copy of all transactional documents,
including payment agreements; and, 5. Other forms related to thorough due
diligence and “Know Your Client” processes
