- Company's patented AML KYCC system continues to drive applications
- More than 150 applications now approved and reportable(see Note 1 below)
- Paydentity also used to identify directors and beneficial owners for KYB
The Company's Paydentity(R) service continues to be the key commercial driver for new business applications, whereby businesses seek to utilise iSignthis' patented Paydentity(R) technology to meet their Anti Money Laundering obligations, and in particular their Customer Due Diligence (CDD) requirements for both onboarding end users/consumers and business partners. As an EU regulated entity, our Paydentity(R) AML process has been submitted to our regulators, and it forms a key component of our Australian regulatory compliance approach.
CDD includes identification and verification not only of the end user or consumer, but also of other businesses in the value or delivery chain. For example, iSignthis performs CDD on its merchants, and under AUSTRAC and EU rules, we identify and verify the Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBO's)(see Note 2 below) and Directors of each entity that we do business with, which is a part of our Know Your Business (KYB) process.
The KYB process must be employed by parties that stand in the value chain, between consumers and merchants, including iSignthis, and other regulated and unregulated entities that may provide payment, credit, buy now pay later, marketplace and emoney services. KYB is a requirement under EU and Australian regulatory requirements and is most often the slowest and most difficult component of new merchant acquisition. We utilise Paydentity to perform aspects of KYB, but also to allow us to Know our Customer's Customer (KYCC). iSignthis uniquely 'looks through' its merchant's transactions and identifies our merchants' customers to a CDD level, allowing both iSignthis and its merchants for whom it processes payment to meet their CDD requirements.
In Australia, Paydentity(R) meets the CDD requirements of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Funding Regulations, allowing our merchants to benefit from our patented technology to take advantage of the Digital Safeharbour provisions, whilst we process payments on their behalf. The iSignthis KYCC process delivered via Paydentity(R) thus has the dual benefit of allowing our Fintech customers and merchants to comply with their AUSTRAC and/or EU regulatory requirements, whilst at the same time de-risking our own operations as we track money flow from the consumer through our systems and to the merchant.
