Importance of KYB
Know Your Business (KYB) is a crucial process for businesses to verify the identity and assess the risks associated with their corporate customers. KYB is essential to comply with anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) regulations, prevent fraud, and ensure ethical business practices. It involves conducting due diligence on corporate entities to gather information and evaluate their legitimacy.
During the KYB process, businesses typically verify several key aspects. This includes identifying the legal and beneficial ownership of the company, confirming the company’s existence and registration status, assessing the corporate structure and hierarchy, and validating financial information such as revenue, assets, and liabilities. Additionally, businesses investigate any affiliations with high-risk individuals or entities and check for politically exposed persons (PEPs), and adverse media associated with the company.
