What are the new Beneficial Ownership Rules?

On May 11, 2018, the rule issued by the U.S. government requiring financial institutions, including all banks and credit unions, to collect specific information to identify and verify the identity of beneficial owners of legal entity customers, subject to certain exclusions and exemptions, went into effect. These new rules are designed to aid the government in the fight against financial crimes, terrorist financing and other national security threats. In compliance with this new regulation, Chelsea Groton Bank collects beneficial ownership information from legal entity customers. This means that any time an account is opened or maintained for a legal entity, we will request information that identifies the ultimate beneficial owner(s) and controlling person of the legal entity.

  • Who is a beneficial owner? A beneficial owner is defined under the Rules as: 
    • each individual, if any, who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise, owns 25% or more of the equity interests of a legal entity customer; and
    • a single individual with significant responsibility to control, manage, or direct a legal entity customer, including an executive officer or senior manager (e.g., a Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Managing Member, General Partner, President, Vice President, or Treasurer); or any other individual who regularly performs similar functions. This list of positions is illustrative, not exclusive, as there is significant diversity in how legal entities are structured.
  • What beneficial ownership information must be collected about beneficial ownership from the legal entity customer? Information such as name, date of birth, address, and social security number or other government identification number (passport number or other similar information in the case of foreign persons) and identification documentation for all beneficial owners at the time a new account (i.e., loan, deposit account, safe deposit box) is opened and/or maintained (change in ownership, change in account signers, death of an owner/principal, change in legal entity type, etc.).
  • Who does the Rule apply to? Any corporation, limited liability company, or other entity created by the filing of a public document with a Secretary of State or similar office, a general partnership, and any similar entity formed under the laws of a foreign jurisdiction that opens an account. The definition also includes limited partnerships, business trusts that are created by a filing with a state office, and any other entity created in this manner.
  • Are any legal entities exempt from the Rule? A legal entity customer does not include sole proprietorships, unincorporated associations such as scout troops or youth sport leagues, estates, U.S. and state government entities, municipalities, publicly traded companies and their majority-owned domestic subsidiaries and certain trusts.

How can I set up alerts for my business account within my online banking account?

  • Log in to online banking.

May I provide Online Banking access to other people in my company?

Yes, there are many ways to customize your business online banking experience. By using online 'entitlements,' our business banking customers are able to grant online banking access to trusted members of their business, and have the ability to limit that access to the activities and transactions that they permit. Please call or email the Business Banking team to schedule an appointment at any of our locations or at your place of business.

How do I deposit checks using my mobile device?
