How can I verify my business?

How can I verify my business?

If you’ve been asked to provide a document to verify your business, please submit an official document that shows your name and, if applicable, your business name. It’s important that your name on this document exactly matches your name as you entered it on your Found account.

Suggested documents based on your business type

This is not an exhaustive list of allowed documents. The names of these documents may vary depending on your location (state, county, or city).

Sole proprietors

If you conduct business under your own name, without a separate name for your business, one of the following documents may be used to verify your business:

  • State, county, or city business license

  • Seller’s permit

  • Certificate of Insurance

If you use a separate Doing Business As (DBA) name, please provide a document that lists both your name and your business name. These may include:

  • Assumed Name Certificate

  • Fictitious Name Certificate

  • Trade Name Certificate 

Other business structures

If you’re a single-member LLC or you’ve incorporated your business, you’ll likely have one of these documents:

  • Articles of Organization

  • Certificate of Formation

  • Articles of Incorporation

  • IRS EIN Verification Letter
