Questions about required documents
Are any documents required from the sender of the transfer?
For transfers above the equivalent of EUR 1,000 or when the sum of minor transfers exceeds the equivalent of EUR 1,000, the sender is required to present documents confirming the identity (passport or ID card) and documents confirming the address of residence in the UK (e.g. a letter from HMRC, bank or a bill, on which is the sender's name, current address and date of issue of the document). Required documents – link. This obligation results from the act on counteracting the so-called money laundering.
Why are documents required?
The law requires from us financial security measures, monitoring and control of all transactions that are carried out through our company. We require that for each transaction above the equivalent of EUR 1,000 (or when the sum of minor transfers exceeds the equivalent of EUR 1,000) the sender's identity has been confirmed. According to the AML Rules, the transaction may be stopped if the required documents are not submitted.
How can I provide the required documents?
Log in to your Client Portal, select the "Scan Documents" tab and upload files. Optionally, you can send your documents by e-mail to the following address: email@example.com
Do you have to confirm your identity every time?
No. If the documents have already been delivered once, the client does not have to re-confirm his identity.
What will happen if the customer refuses to comply with the document submission procedure?
Our company may refuse to transfer money. In the case of transfer of false personal data by the client or at the time of suspicion of possible so-called "Money laundering" or other criminal activity, we are legally obliged to report such a fact to appropriate authorities without disclosing this fact to the Client.
