KYC – KYB
All LT registered members and commercial accounts receive a LTA™ upon successful registration and commercial account approval. Each account is unique to each member and commercial account. All financial transactions relevant to a member or commercial account occur in that member’s LTA. A member or commercial account can have only one account.
When you register with LT, you are automatically creating an international bank account number (IBAN) with LT; you have 20 business days to verify your information otherwise your account will be closed. If you attempt to create multiple accounts without the prior written consent of LT, we reserve the right to report you to the local or regional jurisdictional authorities as a potential risk under the PATRIOT ACT, FAFT, OFAC, MLAT, FACTA, United Nations or other authorities as required by LT’s compliance guidelines.
