The Bank Is Asking Me for Documents to Prove the Structure of the Shareholders or Members of the Board

It may happen that the bank asks you for a notarised document that proves the shareholding structure to verify it.

They usually ask for 2 types of documents:

Banks can request documents to show that they are actually talking to the owners and representatives of the business and that they have the power and authority to open the bank account.

These documents are usually two: the entry in the registry and the articles of association of the company, where the names of the members of the company's board of directors are listed.

If this is your case, don't worry, Companio can help you. Our pack includes a sworn translation of the document or notarisation, the Hague Apostille, sending physical and digital copies, and help and support during the process. All for only €650+VAT.

Some banks may be more interested in getting proof of the shareholder structure. They want to know who the real “owners” of the company are. This is what is called “extended registry information”, which contains the names of the shareholders and the amount of capital that each of them has contributed.

If this is the document you need, we can also help you. In this case, it is a document in English, notarised and without an apostille, and the price is €30+VAT.

If you need these documents and want us to help you or have any questions, you can contact our support team for more information.
