How true should my business description be when applying?

When filling in the application please make sure that you are as precise as possible with your product descriptions. Some customers have unfortunately been refused an account because they have failed to give an accurate description. For example - someone who is selling herbal products, may simply put 'Health care supplements'. However this can easily be misconstrued to mean pharmaceutical tablets, pills etc. However, if a description of '100% herbal products such as vitamins and protein supplements' had been entered then it would have passed the initial stage.

This also works in reverse. For example if you are renting out accommodation that you own and have control of (no third party) but you fail to mention that you will also be supplying flights etc. and do not have the necessary bonding, then your application will be rejected.
