Why do I need to add my legal entity information?

This article explains why gymGO is required to verify your legal entity and how to complete this step in your account set up.

Why is my legal entity information required?

In order for gymGO to accept and send payments, we are required to follow "Know Your Customer" regulations.  KYC regulations requires us to collect information about the individual or company receiving funds and verify that the information is accurate.  The following information must be collected in order for us to verify your account: 

  • The entity type (individual or company)
  • The business name (company only)
  • Full legal name of the individual or company representative
  • Date of birth of the individual or company representative

Sometimes, as part of our KYC process we may require additional information.  We'll let you know when and what that additional information is to complete the verification for your account.  If any of the required information has not been collected, we will put a temporary hold on payouts to your account until the information has been verified.
