What checks does compliancely.com perform?
We check all of the lists or databases seen below. Keep in mind that these checks are to help you validate the identity of the person you are paying as a contractor/vendor and to ensure that person or entity is not on a list where doing business with them may cause you to face penalties. The checks can help you avoid costly fines, but they are not the basis for hiring decisions.
As we add more lists and databases to our checking process, you will see those listed below. Don’t see a list that you’d like to have us include?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add the list to our ongoing review process.
real-time identity verification
Our Real-Time Verification validates the vendor/contractor’s name and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) against the IRS database, returning your results in seconds. Validating the information provided to you on the W-9 helps limit your exposure to incorrect filing penalties from the IRS when you file your 1099 forms. Those penalties can reach $100 per incident, not to mention the expense of your time to respond to the IRS.
In addition to the IRS check, we also verify the information against several other databases, including the Death Master File, OFAC, and the Denied Persons List among others. Protect yourself and your company by always verifying the vendor/contractor you hire is who they say they are.
Securing your data has never been more important. Compliancely provides bank-level security with 256-bit encryption of all data, whether at rest or in transit. All of your data resides in the US and never leaves the country. We completed a successful SSAE-16 Type II audit. Compliancely takes every precaution to ensure your data remains secure.
