GwG-Identification for bank account in Germany

We offer identification and legitimacy verification for opening a bank account in Germany. German credit institutions must verify the identity of foreign-based contractors in accordance with the legal provisions on combating money laundering and terrorist financing. This applies e.g. when opening bank accounts or concluding credit agreements. The German Chambers of Commerce act as vicarious agents of the credit institutions and are able to provide identification and legitimacy checks. Please contact us for more information.
