Event Description

Someone wants to open a business account.  Do you know what type of business it is and the documentation you should request?  How do you determine whether the person has the proper authority to open the account and what that authority means?  What regulatory requirements are applicable to business accounts?  From sole proprietorships to corporations and everything in between, this program will provide details about the correct documents and proper use of taxpayer identification numbers for business accounts. 


  • How will the new beneficial ownership requirements affect the account opening process?
  • What documents should be required from a business before establishing an account?
  • Are there specific account agreements and signature cards for businesses?  How do they differ from natural person accounts?
  • Who has authority to establish an account and where is that information found?
  • When is it important to obtain additional information regarding account use?
