To be compliant with financial regulations, Adyen is required to know the identity of individuals who control or own your company.

You need to provide proof of identity for:

  • Controlling person(s): At least one member of senior management staff responsible for managing the company.
  • Signatory: The person signing the contract.

If the owner of the company is also a signatory or a controlling person, you do not need to fill in the same information twice. Under Select Controlling person/Select Signatory, select the drop-down menu, and choose the corresponding identity.
