They are the true owners of the company

Updated over a week ago

Before we can successfully take care of your capital deposit and help you develop your company, we need to know you a little better!

Therefore, we need you to register all the ultimate beneficial owners of your business. Don’t panic! Although this term may seem daunting, it’s really quite simple.

First things first, a definition.

A beneficial owner is a natural person who:

  • Either owns more than 25% of the capital or voting rights

  • Or has controlling power over the company

💡 For each ultimate beneficial owner, we need their date/place of birth and a copy of their ID.

To sum up, we need their:

  • First name

  • Surname

  • Date of birth

  • City of birth

  • Country of birth

  • Zip code of birth

  • Country of residence

  • Nationality

If you’re reading this, that means you’re a natural person. From now on, corporate entities can also deposit capital with Qonto!
