Fort

Identification Duty

Fort Advocaten N.V. conducts its business in accordance with the Dutch Act for the Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism, which entered into force on 1 August 2008. This act replaces the Dutch Act on Identification before Providing Services and the Dutch Act on the Disclosure of Unusual Transactions.

Under the Dutch Act for the Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism, we are obliged, before providing certain services, both to identify (client investigation) the client and the ultimate beneficial owner, if any, and to report (intended) unusual transactions to the hotline designated for that purpose.

Natural persons can be identified by means of a valid passport, driving licence or identity card. Legal entities are identified by means of an extract from the Trade Register of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and identification of the representative of this legal entity.
