Information about identification.
Westpac is, or may be, required to verify the identity of all the Administrators and/or Authorisers nominated and certain other information in your form.
If the nominated individual is already a signatory of an account of the organisation or a signatory of a personal account with Westpac and Westpac already holds their identification details1, no further action is required.
If the nominated individual is NOT a signatory of a Westpac account (either an account of the organisation or a personal account), they MUST complete a 'Customer Information Certificate - Business Online User'. This form is part of the Business Online Application form.
They must then take acceptable identification1 and hand the form in person to a relationship manager or a Westpac branch.
If the individual is unable to meet with a relationship manager or go into a Westpac branch for any reason, they can get a copy of their acceptable ID certified by a Trusted Referee1 and then the form can be submitted along with the certified copy to a relationship manager or Westpac branch.
