August 28, 2012 (Newswire.com) - SecurityMetrics addresses industry-wide concern with its new SecurityMetrics On-the-Spot TIN Check underwriting tool designed to simply and instantly validate merchant IRS Tax Identification Numbers (TIN). Industry experts estimate 20-25% of merchants will require annual revalidation of inaccurate, incorrect, mismatched, or missing TIN based on merchant churn between processors. SecurityMetrics On-the Spot TIN Check is an affordable and quick solution for SecurityMetrics PCI customers who don't have the resources to effectively validate new merchants or changes in legacy accounts.
If acquirers wish to board an account swiftly while verifying required merchant information, it typically takes a minimum of 48 hours for the IRS to respond. Considering annual merchant churn, the two-day time lapse and additional time spent in merchant re-communication negatively impacts acquirer resources. Acquirers that enter merchant data through SecurityMetrics TIN matching portal can validate IRS TIN in minutes.

"We created a time-saving solution to help acquirers fulfill their sustained responsibility to obtain correct TIN information and legal business names for each merchant."
