GwG Identification and Legitimacy Tests

Identity Checks and Legitimacy Tests

We offer identity checks and legitimacy tests for the opening of a bank account in Germany 

Individuals who want to open an account in a credit institution in Germany need an appropriate identity verification. This regulation is based on the Money Laundering Act (GwG), which stipulates the identity check of any legal and natural person abroad wishing to open an account (current account, securities account, safe deposit box, etc.) in Germany.

Individuals living in India may approach the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce in India for the purpose of identity verification.

Our services: 

We assume the following responsibilities for identity verification, in accordance with the GwG (GwG-Ident):

• GwG-Identification of your person/your enterprise, as well as the legitimation of the     authorized representative(s) in the framework of a personal appointment.

• The transmission of the documents and dispatch of required documents (identity documents) to the credit institute in Germany.
