KYB (Know Your Business)

The KYB procedure has the same purpose as KYC, it is a way to assess the AML/CFT risks that new and existing business relationships pose and help determine whether the business is genuine or used to conceal the identity of the owners or business activity for illegal purposes.

Accordingly, the KYB procedure finds out the ultimate beneficiaries (UBOs) in order to understand who benefits from the financial activities of the enterprise. Checks are also being carried out to determine whether the company or its employees are subject to international sanctions, whether they have been subjected to political corruption, or have been the subject of news reports that may indicate their involvement in criminal activities.

For these purposes, the following corporate documents are collected and processed:

  • Certificate of Incorporation/registration
  • Memorandum and Articles of Association
  • Documents, declared company beneficial owners and directors

  • Extracts from the state register of legal entities

Crypto transaction check

The Sumsub Crypto compliance solution is used to detect and prevent financial crimes using crypto assets.

The system allows you to check for the ”toxicity" of most major cryptocurrencies, make a risk assessment for working with them, save the results of the study in a detailed report with a graphical representation of the data, and monitor assets over time.

This is not just a technology platform, but a legally equipped, customer-oriented system for verifying compliance with AML, FATF, and FinCEN requirements, and recognized by most regulatory authorities and financial institutions.

Sumsub also complies with the Crypto Travel Rule (FATF Recommendation #16) that requires VASPs and financial institutions engaged in virtual asset transfers to collect and share the personal data of transaction originators and beneficiaries.

For companies that use crypto in their settlements with counterparties, it is important to safeguard reputation by processing only non-toxic crypto funds.
