Combining KYB and KYC due diligence, our tools help verify businesses by applying multiple layers of risk detection to fully understand if the business or the owner is engaged in suspicious activity.

How can we help?

KYB verification gives you access to a powerful, comprehensive range of datasets, combined with the insight you require, to better understand and verify your business customers, via a process that works for you.


How we verify businesses and their owners

The data sources relied upon by many to verify their business customers do not provide necessary level of scrutiny needed. Companies House simply gathers and processes data, but it does not verify the legitimacy of that data. Experian provides access to the most comprehensive breadth of data in the market and our KYB data verification process utilises over 20 different data sources. Multi-sourced data corroboration is critical for understanding customers and exposing hidden risks. A full historic view of companies and directorships, collected over many years, allows company movements and directorships across companies to be identified.

Our Key Party Screening data then allows you to confidently identify which individuals make up an organization (Ultimate Beneficial Owners and Persons of Significant Control), authenticate that they are who they say they are, and flag any criminal history or suspicious activity.
