Company ownership and director requirement
In certain countries, Stripe is required to collect, verify, and maintain information on a company’s owners — known as “beneficial owners” — and directors. These requirements come from our regulators and are intended to promote transparency, and to prevent individuals from using complex company structures to hide terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, and other financial crimes.
Determine what information is required
If you sign up for a Stripe account directly, the information required will show in the account activation section of the Dashboard.
If you do not have all of the ownership information needed to complete the application, see: Missing beneficial owner or director information.
