Each workspace on Prolific has a single legal identity (name and address). This is the institution or individual who is funding the workspace.
If your workspace doesn’t have a legal identity, you’ll see a prompt to add one before you can add money to your account. The legal identity will show on all documents generated from the workspace.
Adding your workspace legal identity
Before adding details, check you are in the correct workspace. Read more about how to change between workspaces here
To add the legal identity to your workspace:
- Select the ‘Settings’ tab in the left sidebar
- Under the ‘Legal Identity’ header, select the ‘Add’ button next to ‘Name and address’.
- Add the name and address of the institution/individual who will be funding your workspace in the popup window and select ‘Apply’.
Please ensure that you enter the legal identity of the workspace correctly before you start using the workspace. Once you have added funds to a workspace, you will not be able to change the legal identity.
