Remember, non-UK residents will need to obtain a certified or notarised copy of their ID. You can refer to our guide on anti-money laundering for a detailed explanation of certification and notarisation. Please feel free to send us the document prior for us to confirm it would be satisfactory once certified/notarised.
If you do not hold any of the above documents, please get in touch with our Compliance Team who will be able to assist you with what may be accepted in your circumstances.
Your document will be reviewed by our Compliance Team and run through our electronic check alongside your address proof. This is a soft search report which will help us verify your identity.
And it is as simple as that! Follow the steps to upload the relevant photo ID alongside your proof of address via our upload form. Our compliance team will reach out to you within 24 hours, and we aim to swiftly activate your Virtual Office upon approval.
Submitted documentation found to be fraudulent or altered in any way will be reported to the relevant legal authority. We take our responsibility really seriously and maintain a high standard of compliance checks. Altering or fabricating a proof of address document is fraud- it’s not worth the risk, so don’t do it!
