Leading global RegTech kompany is now offering ClariLab's KYCnow platform instant access to original company information from more than 200 jurisdictions. Access to kompany’s global network of registers will enable obligated parties under the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) and other KYCnow users to verify the identity of their business clients abroad directly via the platform.
Frankfurt, Germany / Vienna, Austria June 17, 2021: As part of fulfilling Know-Your-Customer requirements, business clients must, by law, be identified through an official government register extract. KYCnow users can now complete this identity verification seamlessly, accessing original company information and documents via kompany’s global register network. Relevant trade and commercial registers can all be accessed instantly and in the same way as the joint register portal of the federal states, the German commercial register.
This partnership marks yet another step ClariLab has taken to decisively advance the internationalization of its KYC solution offering and to provide AMLA obligated parties with a KYC process that not only eliminates the need to manually retrieve external data, but also excludes the use of static databases.
Tobias Eiss, Managing Director of ClariLab says, “With the connection of the KYCnow platform to the data sources from kompany, we are closing an important gap in the handling of register data. By accessing the registers of other countries, we can significantly increase the amount and quality of data to improve the KYC process across national borders and jurisdictions.“
A global network providing real-time access to primary source Business KYC (KYB) data from over 200 jurisdictions covering 115 million companies
The partnership between ClariLab and kompany provides users of the KYCnow platform access to the leading global register network and in turn, audit-proof company information from commercial registers, financial authorities and tax offices around the world. Through the instant access to this primary source information, the KYC process is greatly enhanced by including official information on over 115 million companies across more than 200 countries and jurisdictions.
Russell E. Perry, CEO and Co-Founder of kompany: “With increasing compliance and AML requirements, the veracity and source of company data has become a central point in combating money laundering and fulfilling AMLA obligations. We are therefore, proud to provide ClariLab’s clients with our unparalleled access to real-time audit-proof company information, ensuring anti-money laundering compliance across jurisdictions and helping their clients achieve a higher level of competitiveness as regulatory requirements continue to evolve.”
