Hi all, I'm setting up a website and I want businesses to sign up but I am not sure on how I would go about verifying them to make sure they are real? Like how do I stop someone from signing up as say Facebook or McDonald's or whatever? I don't want to use the Companies House company number as I don't think franchises have separate numbers. Also it's possible for a Ltd company to have various businesses under their name and maybe they only want to sign one of those up. Initially I was thinking of maybe using their business account bank details? My bank should be able to see that I'm sending/receiving money from a business account and if the name on the account matches the name they are signing up with then that should work as a pretty solid verification? If sole traders aren't trading with a business bank account (not sure why but I have read that that is a possibility as you banking in your personal account doesn't change your tax etc), then how can I go about (automatically) verifying them as a legitimate business?
