Why is Go Carrera asking for my company's financial information?


This document is to guide you through the company onboarding process. We’ve worked hard to make this quick and painless.

Go Carrera partners with industry standard payment providers to help you pay subcontractors within our platform.

Why is Beneficial Ownership (BO)/Controller Address Information Required?

When asked, Beneficial Owner (BO) and Controller address information must be a PERSONAL physical address matching to the individual. Any business address used in these locations will put your account into a manual review mode and will require that you reach out to Go Carrera Support to get you back on track.

This information is required as you are, in effect, establishing a digital bank account/wallet for your company and controller/ownership information is required to tie together that new account and the rightful owner(s) of that account.

Document Upload

If required, you may be asked to upload documentation to verify the business address as well as the business entity itself.

We recommend using a single PDF with multiple pages that contain the following:

  • IRS-issued EIN letter (not just the application
  • Any US government entity (federal, state, local) issued business formation or licensing exhibiting the name of the business, or;
  • Any business formation documents exhibiting the name of the business entity in addition to being filed and stamped by a US government entity (some examples include: filed and stamped Articles of Incorporation, Sales/Use Tax License, Business License, Certificate of Good Standing)

Note: if you’ve prepared this document in advance (recommended), select a Document Type of Other, when prompted.
