Tax Compliance 

Tax information collected and withholding applied based on tax rules. No need to chase down W-9s and deal with incorrect bank information and returned payments. 

Data Privacy 

Access to sensitive data is restricted to limit compliance issues. A data breach is a huge risk and our platform insulates you from that risk. 

KYC/AML Verification 

Prevents money from going to flagged accounts and persons. Do you have an AML policy? No, then we can help you be compliant with financial regulations. 

Cross-Border Payments 

Make payments across all 50 states and globally through optimized financial routes. We enable your international student athletes to take advantage of NIL opportunities.
