Business Lookup Report


The Business Lookup Report verifies that a business exists, and returns a set of additional attributes such as corporation registration filing number, registered agents, website, state registrations, physical addresses, and industry code. The Business Look Report only supports KYB for US entities.

The Business Lookup Report is powered by data from hundreds of sources, including public government records at the federal and state levels. Government records include records from each state’s Secretary of State and professional licensing divisions; the SBA; the SEC, and more. Persona combines this data with proprietary information from industry-leading business data providers and with a company’s digital footprint.

Why is this report type valuable?

Instead of an analyst having to manually collect and analyze information about the business from different sources, this Report allows an organization to collect the information, verify it, and surface it in one place. This information is instrumental in the KYB process as it validates the legitimacy of the given business.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Does Business Lookup Report include Beneficial Ownership information?

Not necessarily. Persona’s Business Lookup Report surfaces officers and agents, which can contain beneficial owners. However, this is not an exhaustive list of all beneficial owners necessarily. There is no database available in the US that harbors all beneficial owners of every business.
