Business Name Verification

Verifying or changing the name of a business account

Business Name Verification or Update

If your customer changes their legal business name, we'll need to update the legal business name in Sila databases as well. Likewise, in some cases a potential customer can fail ID verification due to their business name. The following is a list of documents we can accept to verify or update your customers legal business name.

  • Articles of Incorporation or Certificate of Formation (for LLCs.)
  • A state Certificate of Good Standing
  • IRS EIN verification letter
  • Business license
  • Business Tax return


Document requirements

  • We need to see all four corners of the document, and the business name you are verifying must be clearly visible.
  • Original PDFs are best.
