Why is a Notary Public needed to open an account with Revolut?

Before opening a business account with Revolut, they need to ensure the ownership structure of a company. To do this, Revolut requires documentation of the company’s ownership structure to be presented and certified by a Notary Public. The Notary Public confirms that the document provided by the company matches what is registered and that the document is correct. After the Notary Public has confirmed the ownership structure, the business account can be opened. This document of the ownership structure is called an “Shareholder Structure”.

What is a Shareholder Structure?

A shareholder structure refers to the composition and distribution of ownership in a company. It identifies the individuals or entities that hold shares in the company and their respective ownership percentages. A well-defined shareholder structure outlines the ownership dynamics, voting rights, and decision-making power within the organization. For Revolut the important part is to get an overview of the different stakeholders in the company applying to open up a Revolut Business account.

What is a “Details from the beneficial ownership register”?

In Sweden, just like in many other places, there is a strong focus on corporate transparency to prevent financial crimes such as tax evasion and money laundering. One way this is achieved is through the establishment of a Beneficial Ownership Register.

The Swedish Companies Registration Office is responsible for maintaining the Beneficial Ownership Register, which serves to document and provide information about the actual individuals who control over 25% of a company’s ownership or voting rights, or who can otherwise influence the company’s management. This is different from nominal owners whose names may only appear on share certificates or other corporate paperwork.

Details from the Beneficial Ownership Register may include:

  1. The beneficial owner’s full name.
  2. Date of birth.
  3. Nationality.
  4. Residential address.
  5. The nature and extent of the beneficial interest held.
  6. Date on which the individual became a beneficial owner.
  7. Other pertinent details to provide clarity on the ownership structure.

It is important to mention that the register’s data is mainly meant for Swedish authorities, but some parts of it are accessible to the public under specific circumstances. This is in line with Sweden’s dedication to having a transparent business environment and complying with international standards and agreements.
