  • It is an honor and great fun, working with a company like uqudo! I‘m fascinated not just by their great talent and tech & market expertise … but especially by their passion. For their products, their customers and the restless willingness to go beyond. All this resulted already in impressive successes – looking forward to working with the team, to truly ‘own’ the region and grow beyond.

We price based on successful onboarding.

Say goodbye to request-based fees, repeat charges, and spiralling customer acquisition costs.


What is KYB?

Know Your Business (KYB) refers to the controls that a company must implement to ensure its clients are not engaged in criminal activity. It is the process of due diligence that should be undertaken before dealing with any organisation.

What is the difference between KYC and KYB?

KYC (Know Your Customer) refers to verifying the identity of an individual, whereas KYB (Know Your Business) analyses and verifies the identity of companies.

Why is KYB necessary?

KYB helps companies obtain essential information about their potential clients, in order to protect their interests while dealing with other businesses. It also ensures that organisations are not indirectly associated with fraudulent activities.

The main advantages of a comprehensive KYB Screening procedure are:

  1. Helps evaluate the business authenticities of companies, and identify changes in transactional behavior, which sometimes indicate fraud.
  2. Identifies the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) and evaluates their risk profiles.
  3. Screening key stakeholders prevents the occurrence of financial fraud and makes companies trustworthy.

Who are UBOs?

A UBO (Ultimate Beneficial Owner) is the ultimate business owner of an organisation. A UBO can be classified as someone 

  • who owns more than 25% of the company’s shares.
  • who controls more than 25% of the voting rights.
  • who is a beneficiary of at least 25% of the organisation’s capital.
  • who is a shareholder, including those with bearer shares that can be transferred anonymously.

Can uqudo verify KYB documents in languages other than English?

Yes, uqudo’s KYB coverage includes more than 98 languages, including Arabic, English, Afrikaans and many more.
