SmartSearch launches market leading Global KYB service

Anti-money laundering specialist SmartSearch has launched International Business Reports, the most comprehensive Know Your Business check on the market.

This unique new service can run reports on corporates and entities in more than 200 countries, and identify and verify associated entities, directors, and beneficial owners. It completes a full KYB check, provides business identification data, shareholder and ultimate beneficial ownership detail and consolidated financial information. As with all SmartSearch checks, the service also includes screening for PEPs and Sanctions and ongoing monitoring with alerts about any changes, ensuring customers remain compliant and audit-ready.

To use the International Business Reports service, customers simply enter the business name, postcode and city via the SmartSearch platform, which can be accessed via desktop, tablet or handheld device, making it easy for businesses to run checks in a remote working environment.

To offer flexibility and cater to its customers’ varying business and compliance needs, International Business Reports has two levels of service; Instant Online and Freshly Investigated.

Instant Online - which is available in 87 countries - offers instant business report delivery, while Freshly Investigated, available globally, uses local agent coverage and registry sources to offer up to date and accurate insight. Depending on the timescales needed, freshly investigated reports can be ordered as a 2-5 working day service (Express) or 6-10 working day service (Standard).

Martin Cheek, Managing Director at SmartSearch said: “With access to more than 200 markets, using data from industry leading global data providers and local registry sources, our new International Business Checks service offers the most comprehensive business checks in the market.

“Our quick and easy to use input page, combined with our advanced verification, screening and monitoring technology, including ongoing monitoring and alerts, not only offers our customers the peace of mind that they are running robust checks on their corporate customers, but also, that they are saving a huge amount of time and money by streamlining their onboarding.”

SmartSearch’s new International Business Report service can even been integrated with a client’s existing customer database.

Martin adds: “Using the latest API technology, we can integrate with our client’s existing systems, enabling them to further streamline their processes even further by avoiding duplicate inputting and allowing business reports to be delivered as part of their existing workflow.
