Content

The best way to integrate innovations into your business is to open a corporate account on WhiteBIT. This step will expand your opportunities in the cryptocurrency market and optimize financial and operational processes. A corporate account allows one to use modern financial tools effectively for large corporations and startups.

This article outlines the key benefits of passing the KYB (Know Your Business) procedure. We’ve also attached a guide to help you create and verify your corporate account in 3 simple steps.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Create and verify your account

First, you need to sign up on the WhiteBIT platform. After creating an account, you need to pass KYC (Know Your Customer) process. Then, you will confirm your identity by submitting personal documents.

Step 2: Launch the KYB (Know Your Business) process

After a successful KYC verification, do the following:

  • Select the KYB option in the upper right corner of the menu. KYB is a procedure for verifying business clients’ data.
  • You will be prompted to generate a link for the new KYB form. Open the link to start filling out the form.

If you have any questions or difficulties while filling out the form, please contact your Account Manager (AM/CSM), who can help you via live support chat or phone.

Step 3: Finalize the process

After completing the form, you should inform your AM/CSM of your company name. Your application will be passed on for further processing.

Documents Required

Before applying, you need to prepare documents for company verification.

These include:

  1. Corporate documents :
  • Certificate of Incorporation (or similar) (translated into English and apostilled)
  • Appointment of Director (or similar)/Register of the Directors
  • Articles of Association (or similar)
  • List of Shareholders/Beneficial owners (Shareholder register)

3. The record or the resolution of the management board (director) in respect of the person who is authorized to execute the Application on behalf of the company.

4. Proof of address of the Company (lease agreement; utility bill no older than 3 months).

Please note! The list of documents may vary slightly depending on the jurisdiction. 

The verification process may take longer if we need any additional information. In case the full package of documents is provided immediately and does not require any clarification, the application may take up to two business weeks to be processed. In addition, the verification processing speed depends on the availability of all the necessary documents and a quick response to the support team’s requests.
