Comprehensive Business Reviews

Our system runs data through all 50 states, EIN verification, UBO associations, OFAC, sanctions, and address checks. If we detect any inconsistencies, we flag them and provide additional information or best practice watchlists to resolve the issue.


We go above and beyond typical KYC/KYB with license lookups for cannabis, hemp and MSB by scanning against FinCEN, state data, and the best licensing providers in the industry. Depending on your state, we can also share additional data such as program violations and updates to further tailor your solution.
