AML Commercial

Validate organisations and their officers to help protect your business

Validate a firm plus its officers to reduce your exposure to risk

Equifax Commercial AML is a powerful business entity verification solution that supports Customer Due Diligence (CDD), regulatory compliance and helps prevent fraud. Validating a firm plus its officers ensures that the company exists and any potential related risks are known, so you can move forward with confidence.

Equifax Commercial AML verification is delivered using independent, reliable and accurate information, to empower you with a wealth of continually refreshed intelligence. This intelligence offers a deeper level of awareness for your Know Your Business (KYB) evidence gathering process, which is required in line with regulations, when establishing a business relationship.
