Ownership structure varies among all businesses. Whether you’re a sole proprietor, a business partner, or are involved in a corporation, our business accounts are the perfect fit for you.
This means we need an employer identification number or social security number for your Business/Legal Entity.
- Employer Identification Number (EIN) – this is required for ALL partnerships and corporations. You can complete your online application for an EIN by visiting the IRS website.
- Social Security Number (SSN) – this is required for sole proprietorships, groups, or clubs if there is no EIN.
Certification of Beneficial Ownership requires identification documents for any individual, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise, that owns 25% or more of the equity interests of the Legal Entity or Business.
Beneficial owners can provide copies of their identification documents, while original documents will be required for any person designated as a signor or given permission to conduct transactions for the membership.
Identifying Information Required:
- Federally Registered Driver’s License (Passport Number of Country of Issuance, if a non-U.S. person)
- Legal Name (First, Middle, Last)
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number
- Percent of Ownership
