General rules of submission
ID documents cannot be a picture within a document (e.g. passport pasted into word), photocopied (unable to verify security features), obscured in any way (e.g. thumb or light hotspot over MRZ), screenshotted (increased fraud risk), expired / invalid or an unacceptable document type.
POA documents need to be uploaded in the original format if they are an electronic document (e.g. bank statements are a pdf, if you screenshot it then it is now converted to a .png), screenshots are not acceptable (increased fraud risk), expired / invalid or an unacceptable document type.
If you’re able to ensure that the above is correct for each document upload and that it is a high resolution photo of a full document (or original digital copy for POA) then this will help to reduce the number of unnecessary refers that you’ll receive due to the documents not meeting out partners requirements for review.
