Business Lookup Report

Overview

The Business Lookup Report primarily takes in the legal business name and legal business address as inputs. It verifies that this business exists and returns a set of additional attributes such as phone numbers, registered agents, website, state registrations, physical addresses, and industry code. This Report is currently available in the US only.

Why is this report type valuable?

Instead of an analyst having to manually collect and analyze information about the business from different sources, this Report allows an organization to collect the information, verify it, and surface it in one place. This information is instrumental in the KYB process as it validates the legitimacy of the given business.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Does Business Lookup Report include Beneficial Ownership information?

Not necessarily. Persona’s Business Lookup Report surfaces officers and agents, which can contain beneficial owners. However, this is not an exhaustive list of all beneficial owners necessarily. There is no database available in the US that harbors all beneficial owners of every business.
