DOCUMENT REQUIREMENTS

Your document must meet specific requirements in order to be accepted for verification.

The information in this document must include business name, business address, and company registration number or VAT number. It also must be matched to the information on your Stripe account, so it is best to first confirm that the business information listed on your Stripe account is correct before a document is uploaded. You can view your Stripe business information in your Dashboard and make any changes by clicking Edit beside your business details. Your Proof of Legal Entity document upload must be successfully reviewed and matched to the information on your Stripe account before your business can be verified. Reviews can take up to 24 hours for our team to complete.

A summary of document standards is listed below:

UPLOADING YOUR VERIFICATION DOCUMENTS

Due to the highly sensitive nature of your verification documents, Stripe can only accept documents which are uploaded through the Dashboard. Documents must not be sent through email.
