Requirements for directors and beneficial owners

To open a Revolut Business account, we need to confirm the details of the directors and shareholders of your company. This policy is in line with a regulatory requirement commonly known as 'Know Your Customer’ (KYC) and is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients.

You can invite them to submit their ID check themselves OR upload the information and (if applicable) documents on their behalf.

As a minimum, we'll require the following details:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth (over 18 years old)
  • Residential address (at least one director/beneficial owner must reside in the EEA or Switzerland)
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Nationality

In certain cases we might also require:

  • National ID
  • Passport
  • Selfie
  • Document proving person's right to reside in a region

These are all basic business-related details and all documents accepted by us together with supporting explanations are listed in our application form during the sign-up process. We'll review your application within 24 hours and, in some situations, we may ask for additional documents. The application menu will contain all the relevant requirements we'll need to fulfil in every case in order to be compliant with the correspondent regulatory requirement.
