Know Your Customer

The AMLD 5 (anti-Money Laundering) legislation stipulates that as soon as one or more purchases or sales exceed the total of 10.000 euros, sellers and buyers of works of art must comply with the know your customer (KYC) principle. This means that art dealers must obtain more information about the seller and buyer.

Private person

If the seller or buyer is a private person, a copy of the identity card and proof of residence are required.

Legal entity

If the seller or buyer is a company, a copy of the identity card and proof of residence of one of the directors, proof of address of the registered office, the name and date of birth of all directors and the UBOs (ultimate beneficiaries) are required.
