Let's get started!
So happy you are joining the Payhawk family. We are a financially regulated institution that means we will need some business and personal documents before we can give you access to the platform. Don't worry the process is lightweight and takes a couple of minutes. Promise 🤞.
1. To open your account:
We will need to know your name, work email, phone, and residential address
Information about the company and one of its directors.
We will send you and the director an ID verification via SMS that would require a photo of your passport/ID and a selfie.
Once you finish the ID check, our team will reach out to you within 24 hours if we need more information or you can start depositing funds to your new account right away. 🤝
In some cases, we may need some additional information. Nevertheless, we will still open your Payhawk account but you will have a spending limit of £250 (for UK customers) and €250 for the rest of EU customers.
In order to lift that limit, we will need to identify the beneficiary owners of your business and the rest of the directors.
2. Additional information that we will need:
ID verification via email message of the beneficiary owners with more than 25% of shares and the directors.
Proof of address (utility bill, personal bank statement less than 6 months old) of the beneficiary owners with more than 25% of shares and the directors.
We made sure that the process is fast and light and you can start using your Payhawk account within the same day. 😊
