A bit about checking identity documents for KYC/AML

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance checks help regulated businesses, including solicitors, lawyers, estate agents and sellers of high-value goods, guard against fraud, money-laundering and corruption.  To ensure KYC / AML compliance, companies need to carry out due diligence on new clients. Best practice guidelines often cite checking identity documents as an effective first step in any compliance process, to help prove that people are who they say they are. This can be particularly relevant where you have people with little or no digital footprint, who are unable to verify themselves through electronic verification means, or if you are at a particularly high risk of fraud and want to combine document checks with electronic verification to improve confidence levels.
