IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION ABOUT OPENING A LEGAL ENTITY ACCOUNT
Your business relationship is important to us. Our goal is to make the business account-opening process an efficient and enjoyable experience for you. Effective May 11, 2018, all banks will be subject to new rulesunder the Bank Secrecy Act that will aid the government in the fight against crimes to evade financial measures designed to combat terrorism and other national security threats.
EACH time an account is opened for a covered Legal Entity (for example, entities created by a filing with the Secretary of State or similar office such as Corporations, LLC, Limited Partnerships, etc., and General Partnerships) we will be required to ask you for identifying information (name, address, date of birth, social security number) as well as identification documentation for:
- Each individual that has 25% or more Beneficial Ownership in the Legal Entity; and,
- One individual that has Significant Managerial Control of the Legal Entity.
Before opening an account on behalf of a Legal Entity, you will be required to provide the appropriate documentation and to certify that this information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge.
In order to make the process as efficient as possible, we suggest that you obtain the above bulleted information, along with a copy of the current Driver’s License for EACH identified individual. If your business will frequently be opening new accounts/loans, please keep this information current and available to present EACH time you come in to establish a new account.
We proudly support all efforts to protect and maintain the security of our customers and our country.
