One of the requirements for opening a BlueVine Business Checking account is providing a physical business address. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), which is a bureau of the U.S. Treasury, requires that customers provide their physical business address, as well as proof of the address. If you didn’t provide a physical business address when applying, you’ll be required to provide one to avoid account closure.
Proof of a Physical Business Address
If you receive a task from BlueVine to provide proof of a physical business address, you can submit one of the following documents:
- Certificate of status from your local Secretary of State showing proof of good standing.
- Certificate of incorporation, articles of incorporation, or other formation documents (i.e., Certificate of Formation for an LLC)
- Fictitious name registration
- Partnership agreement
- Limited partnership agreement
- Resolution of authority
- Operating agreement
- Estate papers
- Trust Agreement/Certification of Trust
- Business license
- Certificate of good standing from a government entity
- 501(c)(3) Letter
- Articles of Organization
When submitting your document, ensure that it’s not blurry. We require downloaded or scanned documents as they are much easier to process than photos of documents. If the document is illegible or blurry, we may be unable to accept it.
