Online Electronic Identity Checks - Information Required

The following are the pieces of information which are required to perform an online electronic money laundering identity check in order to check client identity under know your client rules (kyc) and money laundering regulations:

  • First name
  • Surname
  • House number/name
  • Postcode
  • Date of birth
  • Sex
  • Previous names
  • Previous addresses over the last 3 years (including date resident since)

We do not recommend that you use any other fields in the online form unless you are having trouble getting a successful result with just the above. The more information you enter, the more likely there is to be a mismatch which will cause a failure to identify the person.

The following information can also be entered, but we do not recommend using these fields in the vast majority of cases. These are more likely to create problems identifying the person than to help.

  • How you have been given the information (phone, post, face to face etc)
  • Title, Initials, Suffix
  • Occupancy status at address (eg. tenant, home owner, living with parents etc)
  • Email address
  • Home telephone number

  • Bank account number and sort code

  • Surname at birth
  • Place of birth
  • Country of birth
  • Marital status

  • Vehicle registration number (number plate)
  • National insurance number
  • DVLA (driving license) number
  • Passport number
