Hey bunqers 🌈
At bunq, we make sure your money is 100% safe and follow regulatory procedures in order to do so. As part of our Know Your Customer (KYC) duties, we may reach out to you in the future for some additional account information. In true bunq fashion, we made this super easy to do.
To make sure you can open an account with us seamlessly in 5 minutes, one of the things we need to know is the activities of your company.
Why is bunq asking me to provide this info?
We're legally required to monitor the usage of our bank accounts which is why it's important for us to confirm that information is always up-to-date. We made some changes in our sign up procedure to reflect this.
We're asking these questions because not all types of business activities are within our acceptance policy and we want to better understand what you are doing. This is in order to prevent possible unwanted restrictions on your account at a later point. To do that, we aim to gather as much accurate and elaborate information as possible at the very start of your journey with bunq.
If any information is needed from you, a notification will appear within your Home tab. Then you can provide the necessary information directly from the app so you can continue to save time, every time 🚀
