Bank Account Facilitation
If you are starting a money services business (MSB), you need to take even more careful steps than other types of businesses. This is because there are many regulations and requirements that apply to MSBs that do not apply to other companies.
When it comes to your company’s financial accounts, you might assume that you can simply walk into a bank and open up the accounts that you need and obtain financing. However, banks have to be extremely careful in this legal landscape, as they must take proper precautions against the risk of money laundering and other illegal financial activities using their accounts.
At Bates, our team can make introductions between your MSB and banks. We can ensure that your company has the right anti-money laundering policies in place to demonstrate to banks that you take compliance very seriously. We also assist in completing all paperwork in compliance with “Know Your Client” requirements and ensure that you present all necessary supporting documentation. This can help guarantee that you will have the banking support your business needs.
