What is a bank KYC?
Know Your Customer (KYC) is the process a bank goes through to identify and verify the validity of its customers. The ultimate decision to open a bank account always rests with the bank and it will need to check the identity of all shareholders (persons or companies for subsidiaries) to comply with anti-money laundering regulations, it is common practice in France as in any country.
