What documents do I need to provide for my AML checks

Virtual Office and Registered Company Address customers must provide a copy of one form of photo ID and proof of their residential address to pass our AML checks.

  • Utility bill (gas, electric, water, television, phone bill) issued within the last three months
  • Local authority council tax bill for the current council tax year
  • Bank, building society or credit union statement or passbook dated within the last three months
  • Original mortgage statement from a recognised lender issued for the last full year
  • Solicitors letter within the last three months confirming recent house purchase or land registry confirmation of address
  • Council or housing association rent card or tenancy agreement for the current year
  • Benefit book or original notification letter from a benefits agency
  • HMRC self-assessment letters or tax demand dated within the current financial year
  • Electoral register entry
