Information for all Clients Making Purchases Not Exceeding £10,000
All clients whose total purchase value does not exceed £10,000 over the course of a year are not required to meet any AML requirements. However, for clients whose orders are deemed high risk, this documentation may also be requested.
Information for all Clients Making Purchases Over £10,000
For clients whose total purchase value exceeds £10,000, AML documentation is required. The standard documentation required includes a copy of an official government ID (normally a driver's license or a passport), and a copy of a recent utility bill or a bank statement that confirms the account holders address. This should not be more than 90 days old. Please note that gathering this information helps us to ensure that our website is used legitimately.
All information gathered via AML compliance is maintained in accordance with GDPR privacy guidelines.
For clients wishing to open accounts in a company or entity such as a trust will need to show that they are able to make purchases on behalf of the company. This will include a notarized or validated copy of the company's certificate of incorporation. Other requirements include a certificate of good standing. Additional information will be requested if deemed necessary.
For clients placing orders originating in high-risk jurisdictions, and for clients placing large value transactions in cryptocurrencies, additional information may be requested. If this is necessary, a member of our compliance team will contact you directly to obtain any additional documentation that is required to open your account.
