# Required information

Find out the required information based on the country.

To verify an account holder's legal entity, Adyen requires them to provide information about:

• Their organization.
• The individuals associated with their organization.
• Their bank account, when required for a use case. For example, in use cases that involve moving funds between balance accounts and bank accounts.

### Identifying individuals associated with an organization

As part of the checks, Adyen verifies the identity of individuals that are associated with an organization. We refer to these individuals as ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) and signatories. The table below describes the criteria for identifying them, and the minimum required number for each.

Who Criteria Required number of individuals
UBOs through ownership Individuals who directly or indirectly own 25% or more of the total shares, voting rights or other equity in the organization. Between zero to four. Adyen requires information about all individuals that fit the criteria.

If no one owns 25% or more of the organization, then information must be provided about UBOs through control.
UBOs through control Any individuals who exercise ultimate effective control in making decisions for the whole organization. If such an individual cannot be identified, then members of senior management must be identified as UBOs through control. At least one. Required if no one fits the criteria of UBO through ownership, or if the organization is operating in the United States.
Signatories Officers or representatives who legally represent the organization towards Adyen and are authorised to enter a binding agreement with Adyen on behalf of their organization. At least one.
