Information about your company
To protect you, your company and us from being exploited for money laundering purposes, we are obliged under the Swedish Money Laundering Act to have documented knowledge of your company and its owners – even if we have regular contact with you. We also need to know where the company and its owners are taxpayers. This is why we’re asking you to provide information about your company.
What do you need to know?
Have all the information ready before you start filling in the form. It is not possible to save the information and continue later. The information you should provide about your company includes:
Who owns or controls 25 per cent or more of the company. If nobody owns or controls more than that, we need to know who the beneficial owners of the company are.
The address, personal identity number or date of birth, citizenship, tax liability, and indication of any politically exposed position (PEP) of the owners or designated beneficial owners.
Are any of the owners a company?
Attach an organisational chart, if available, with the company name, company registration number and ownership shares as a percentage.
Are there several levels of owners?
Provide information about the companies or persons in the top level of the ownership structure.
Why we need to ask you questions
To protect you, your company and us from being exploited for money laundering purposes, we are obliged under the Swedish Money Laundering Act to have documented knowledge of you as our customer – even if we have regular contact with you. According to the FATCA act, we also need to know whether your company and its owners are taxpayers in the United States.
When doing your banking with us
When we interact with you as a customer, for example on the login pages of our online bank or in personal conversations, we sometimes ask questions about your company’s banking business or the country in which the company and its owners are taxpayers. You may also have received a letter by mail asking you to submit new information.
Your data is subject to banking confidentiality, and we treat your data completely confidentially.
What happens if we do not receive your information?
In order for you to use our services, we must have correct information about the company, its owners and their proven identities. If we do not have this information we can, in the worst case, be forced to restrict your ability to use our products and services.
