Corporate and Institutional Accounts

A Tier 4 Corporate Account is a verification tier that is meant for corporate clients (businesses) and institutional traders. If you want to use your business to trade on Kraken, a Tier 4 Corporate Account is for you.

A Tier 4 Corporate Account comes with the following benefits:

  • Increased margin borrow limits
  • Increased API rate limits
  • Increased (fiat) deposit limits
  • Increased (crypto and fiat) withdrawal limits

Tier 4 Corporate accounts do not have to go through the normal verification process. Instead, to open a corporate account, please copy the below form into a new support ticket with the subject "Corporate account verification". We're working on a secure web form to make this application process easier, but for now, please bear with us.

You must also enable login two-factor authentication on the security page of the account in order to complete Tier 4 verification.

Before opening your support ticket please be sure that you have your articles of incorporation or other similar documentation pertaining to the registration of your business.
