What information do I have to obtain when identifying a client that isn’t an individual, such as a company or a public body?

When an organization (a corporation, partnership, fund, trust, co-operative or unincorporated association) retains you, you must obtain and record the client’s full name, business address, business telephone number, the general nature of the type of business or activities engaged in by the client, and the name, position of and contact information for the individual(s) authorized to provide and give you instructions. Where applicable, you must also get the incorporation/business identification number and the place of issue of the incorporation/business identification number.
