Verifying your business address

"Know Your Customer” (KYC) obligations require Stripe to verify that account holders are operating from the business addresses they provide in their account application. For addresses that we are not able to verify independently, we might request additional documentation that will allow us to complete the verification process.

Acceptable documentation for business address verification

Below are examples of documentation we can accept for the purpose of this verification. All documents must include either the name of your business or the name of the owner of the Stripe account.

  • Rental or lease agreement with the signature of the owner/landlord and the tenant

  • Utility bills (water, electricity, gas, internet)

  • Federal or state tax returns

  • Articles of Incorporation or other government-issued business documents
