Q&A regarding the uploading of documentation

  • Why do we need a photo of proof of identity for your child?

    The Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act requires us as a bank to be able to provide documentation to the authorities showing that we know who our customers are and how they use our products and services. This is to help prevent fraudulent use of the financial system. 

    Among other things, knowing our customers enables us to take action if a customer behaves in an unusual way or if we can see that unusual transactions are made via the customer’s account. We are under obligation to notify the authorities if we suspect that a transaction may be illegal, for example if there are any signs of money laundering or activities related to the financing of terrorism. 

    We understand that some customers may feel inconvenienced when we ask for proof of identity and/or other information. But just as the security checks at an airport ensure that all travellers can enjoy a safe flight, it is both necessary and in the best interests of us all that we meet the legal requirements for knowing our customers.  

  • Do we have a legal right to ask questions and/or ask for proof of identity?

    Yes, like all other banks, we must be able to provide documentation to the authorities showing that we know who our customers are and understand how they use our products and services. 

    Our obligation to establish and maintain our knowledge of our customers is set out in section 11 of the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act. You can find section 11 of the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act below with the relevant parts of the rules underlined.

    The rules do not state specifically which documents we as a bank must require our customers to submit to us. Section 11(1)(ii) of the Danish money Laundering Act states that the bank “[…] must verify the customer's identity information on the basis of documents, data or information obtained from a reliable and independent source”. 

    All banks must therefore themselves assess what documentation they deem sufficient to enable them to comply with the rules of Danish legislation. 

    Danske Bank generally requests that all customers provide us with a copy of a valid photo ID and health insurance card because we believe that this is the most secure way of documenting that the customer is the person that the customer claims to be.

    Documentation of the child’s address outside Denmark 

    The documentation may not date back more than 6 months and must be written in Latin script. It is important that your child’s full name and address be stated in the document. 

    You can upload one of the following types of document, for example:

    • An account statement from your child’s local bank
    • A document from a public authority in your child’s country of residence
    • A national ID card issued in your child’s country of residence

  • Is it secure to upload files with your proof of identity via our website?
  • How do you take a photo of your proof of identity?
    • Place the passport on a table or other flat surface.
    • You need only take a photo of the page that contains the photograph of child, its name, etc.
    • Make sure there is enough light – but avoid any reflection.
    • Make sure that the photo is in focus and that all the information is clearly visible

    See examples of correctly taken photos of proof of identity here. 

  • Why do we need proof of your address and information about your citizenship?

    Like all other banks, Danske Bank must comply with the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act (Hvidvaskloven), and we must also comply with our own internal anti-money laundering rules.

    To enable us to achieve this, we need basic knowledge about our customers: Who are they? Where do they live? How and why are they using Danske Bank? This is why we are contacting you and asking you to provide us with the information we need, including proof of your address, details of your citizenship, proof of your identity and similar information.

    We fully understand that this may be an inconvenience and can seem strange if you have been a Danske Bank customer for many years. However, just as security checks at the airport are necessary and make your journey safer, it is also necessary for us to document the identity of our customers to enable us to assist the authorities in preventing financial crime.

    We use the information for a number of purposes, including as documentation and to identify so-called Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and individuals with close relations to these people.

    There are also many practical reasons for asking for such information. For example, asking you for proof of your address also helps ensure that we have the correct address when we need to send you a new payment card or similar.

  • Why are we asking for proof of your address when we already have it?
    You may experience that we ask you to provide proof of your address even though we have already registered it in our customer information. This is probably because you live outside Denmark, have a protected (unlisted) address or other similar reason. This means that we do not automatically receive information about your address from the Danish civil registration system and we are therefore unable to receive confirmation of your address from official sources.
  • Are we allowed to block accounts, cards and other facilities if we lack proof of address or information about citizenship?

    At Danske Bank, fighting financial crime in society is one of our highest priorities, and knowledge of our customers is an essential element of our work in this area. By knowing who each individual customer is, we make it difficult for those few individuals who want to commit crime. 

    It is our assessment that proof of address, knowledge of citizenship and similar information is absolutely fundamental in enabling Danske Bank to work to prevent financial crime. 

    So if there are customers who do not send us the necessary information, we have no option other than to block their accounts, cards, and other facilities until we receive the information we need. 

    Blocking accounts and payment cards is always a last resort, and we will make repeated attempts to contact customers from whom we need information before the situation reaches this point.
