New Rules for Opening New Business Accounts!

Effective May 11, 2018, all banks will be subject to new rules under the Bank Secrecy Act requiring us to gather more information when opening new accounts or renewing existing accounts. The rule requires the Bank to obtain, verify and record information about beneficial owners of legal entities. FinCEN has adopted what they describe as a “two pronged” approach to beneficial ownership. The ownership prong includes all natural persons with 25% or more direct or indirect equity interest in a legal entity; while the control prong is a single individual with significant managerial responsibility over the legal entity. We will ask to see each person’s identification and record information from each of them. To help you gather the required information click here to see the Certification Regarding Beneficial Owners of Legal Entity Customers form. Please visit your local branch for more information or call 888-853-7100.
