Should My Business be Performing KYB?

Know Your Business or KYB is a complicated topic but is a mandatory procedure for AML-regulated companies. KYB checks consist of the retrieval of a company’s details and due diligence credit checks, corporate structure, identification, and verification of the UBOs, application of the risk-based approach, and adequate responses to high-risk factors. Each case may vary depending on its specifics and jurisdiction.

KYB is mandatory for financial institutions and various other AML-regulated organisations to verify the identities of their corporate clients. The KYB process is mandatory due to it being a matter of legal compliance for the financial sector. If you are not in the financial sector, your business should still use KYB to eradicate financial risk and fraud. Red Flag Alert utilises Digital AML as well as Manuel AML that cross references the information submitted with domestic and foreign databases. The Digital AML provides where compliance is necessary and preventing the risk of dealing with sanctioned clients.

More Frequently Asked Questions about KYB

What is a KYB check?

Know your business (KYB) are the checks that a firm carries out in order to verify the companies and suppliers they deal with. This is the due diligence review of an organization to help you make informed decisions and verify the legitimacy of a corporate client.

Why is KYB important?

KYB obtains and verifies essential information about the companies they are dealing with; organisations can ensure that every business being onboarded is legitimate and not ultimately funding criminal activity of any kind. This also looks at the financial health and the UBO’s of the company. Examining how organisations are set up and the individuals involved can help compliance teams to minimise the risk of their company inadvertently being linked with fraud or any other criminal activity. It is important to note that KYB is not a once off check. It is an ongoing process that must be revisited fairly regularly, depending on the level of risk deemed applicable to each individual client once onboarded.

What’s the difference between a KYC and KYB check?

KYB and KYC are due diligence checks and effectively allow a company to verify the identity of a client or customer. The key difference is lies in the information that is needed to verify identity. KYC checks verify the identity of an individual where details like their full name, date of birth and address are vital. KYB check the existence of a business as opposed to an individual. Verifying their registration, identifying UBO’s and any persons of significant control. This also includes looking at the financial health of the business.
