Who can sign my Ownership chart?
The chart needs to be signed by a person who meets one of the following requirements:
- Internal person: Qualified professional such as a lawyer, accountant, or auditor; whose qualification/membership can be checked through the official website of the professional body e.g. Bar association or Certified Public Accountants.
- Externally certified by a consultancy firm, notary, lawyer, auditor or other comparable official legal service provider from the registered country/region of the legal entity(ies) under review.
A Professional Body or Professional Institute is an organization with individual members practicing a profession or occupation in which the organization maintains an oversight of the knowledge, skills, conduct and practice of that profession or occupation.
Qualified professional such as a lawyer, accountant or auditor; whose qualification/membership can be checked through the official website of the professional body e.g. Bar association or Certified Public Accountants.
Adyen is obligated to verify the signing person from the professional body’s website or membership registry. A professional body has to be approved by Adyen’s compliance standards.
What if I can’t sign the ownership chart by an eligible signing person?
If the chart is unable to be signed by an eligible person, we will ask for an official government document (not older than 6 months) that supports and verifies all the submitted ownership and control information.
Examples: company registration, shareholder registry, UBO registration. Depending on the country/region of registrations, complexity of the ownership chart and information on the document, Adyen might require a combination of several documents.
