We may ask you to provide additional documents, e.g. if you have an unusual company structure.
❗️ Note: Requests to process cards may be denied, e.g. if you sell prohibited products or services.

MultiSafepay is legally required under the Wwft to establish and verify the identity of your company's ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs).
Download and complete a Statement of Ultimate Beneficial Owner Form for every UBO, and then submit them via your dashboard.
A UBO is a natural person who directly or indirectly holds an equity interest in or exercises control of the enterprise. Most commonly, an individual holds an equity interest of 25% or more of the shares or capital of the enterprise, or exercises:
- 25% or more of the voting rights, or
- De facto control over the affairs of the enterprise, or
- Other special rights of 25% or more over the capital of the enterprise and specific control over, for example, rights granted in the pages of incorporation.
If the enterprise consists of a number of (intermediate) holding companies, then the UBO(s) are all the individuals who, through various companies, have 25% or more control of the underlying enterprise.
Enterprises are not required to have a UBO. For example, if an enterprise has five owners with an equal distribution of capital and control, none of them owns 25% or more of the enterprise.
The limited company Good Ltd has a sole shareholder: Better Ltd. The shares of Better Ltd are held equally by two other limited companies:
- Anders Ltd. which has two equal shareholders: Mr A. Jansen and Ms B. Jansen-de Jong
- Best Ltd. which has one sole shareholder: Ms D. Best
The three ultimate beneficial owners are therefore Mr A. Jansen, Ms B. Jansen-de Jong, Ms D. Best.
About the Wwft
The Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financieren van terrorisme (WWFT), or Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act, prevents companies and individuals from laundering money or financing terrorist activity.
It was based on the Disclosure of Unusual Transactions or Financial Services Act, but goes one step further. It focuses on both individuals involved in suspect transactions and the risk of such transactions.

If approved, your account goes live and you can make payouts.
About KYC checks
As a payment service provider and acquirer, MultiSafepay is legally required to perform KYC checks on the:
- Account holder
- Business bank account
To help you start accepting payments as quickly as possible, we divide our checks into two phases:
- Identification: As soon as we have established the identity of the account holder, you can start accepting payments.
- Verification: As soon as we have verified the identity of the account holder, you can start making payouts to your business bank account.
We may ask for a deposit in case:
- A merchant goes bankrupt and we can't collect funds for chargebacks from their account.
- A merchant uses payment methods that let you withdraw funds from your account balance when there are no funds available, e.g. direct debit or credit card payments.
Deposits are based on various factors:
- Card volume
- Delivery timelines
- Performance and experience
If financials are requested, we request your most recent balance sheet, and profit and loss statement.
