Our credit check system allows you to order a single check, as and when needed, without opening an account, paying a joining fee or committing to a lengthy contract. Order with a click of a button by providing contact details for your staff and making a one off payment.

We will email you the results as soon as these are available. If you prefer to download the results directly from our platform, that’s fine too. Just let us know at the time of ordering and we will send you the details on how to access the results.

About this check

These checks are designed to ensure that staff do not pose significant risk to your business by allowing you to access and review their financial record data. The UK Credit check is available for any role and any industry and data are sourced from a reputable credit bureau. These checks are proving to be especially useful for staff employed in roles with access to cash, financial information and other business critical data. The result report will detail the financial status and historic records of your staff highlighting any potential adverse information covering:

• Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs)
• County Court Judgements (CCJs)
• Bankruptcies
• Identity confirmation
• This search will leave a ‘soft footprint’ on the individual’s credit file. This will not affect the credit score and will not be visible to any third parties.

*For the vast majority of checks the bureau will return the results within a few minutes, but some checks may take up to 24 hours.

What happens after you place an order?

Once you have provided the contact details for your staff, we will email them and ask them to visit our secure portal to complete a quick form providing the necessary information to start the checks.

The following details are required:
• Name and surname
• Date of birth
• UK addresses for the last 6 years

Once we receive the results these will be emailed to you immediately, unless during the ordering process you specify that you prefer to download the results from our platform. In that case we will send you login details to access.

Education verification for work pass applications
in Singapore

As seen in The Business Times and Deloitte

MOM now requires that all foreign nationals looking to work in Singapore must obtain a valid work visa.
Part of this application involves authenticating the education and/or employment of the candidate - proving the qualifications and skillset exist to successfully carry out the role in question in place of a local.

If you’re planning to work or renew your work pass in Singapore, Veremark can help you ensure that the background verification for your work pass application is compliant with the government’s guidelines.
Need help with the verification for your work pass application or renewal?

We can help provide education and employment authentication for the following work passes:

(click on a package to buy it now)

Employment Pass (EP)

Specifically for foreign professionals, managers, and executives who earn at least $5,000 monthly.

OnePass

For overseas professionals who aim to earn at least $30,000 per month. It is valid for five years.

Personalised Employment Pass (PEP)

For foreign professionals or EP holders who earn more than $18,000 a month. This pass allows you to change jobs without reapplying for a new visa, and lasts three years.

Azian Rahmat,
HR Manager, Consultancy

I recently had a particularly time-sensitive request related to an EP renewal. I was impressed by how swiftly the Veremark team handled the request, providing the verification report within just six days.

Devangana Yadav,
Head of Operations, Investment Firm

Veremark: Transparency and simplicity, completion of check in a timely manner. I also wrote in to MOM to provide feedback on Veremark's good work. I strongly believe that service providers must be up to the mark, or they will bring Singapore's business environment into disrepute simply by association of accreditation by MOM.

FAQs

What background check do I need?

This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.

Why should employers check the background of potential employees?

Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.

How long do background checks take?

Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.

Can you do a background check online?

All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.

What are the benefits of a background check?

In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.

What does a background check show?

Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.

FAQs

Can you check someone else's credit score in the UK?

Organizations are only to see an individual's credit report if they have a legitimate reason to do so - like any check the applicant must have given consent. A potential employer may wish to see this information, as well banks, mortgage advisors, creditors and lenders etc.

How far back can I get my credit history?

There is a maximum limit of 6 years on previous reports. This is to comply with the Data Protection Act, which states that your credit report can only be kept for six years after having an account.

How long does adverse credit stay on your file?

An adverse credit history will remain on an individual's credit file for a period of 6 years. After this time, the financial data is removed from their credit score.

Is it illegal to run a credit check without permission?

Like any background check, an applicant must give consent before this can begin. To view an individual's credit report a prospective employer should have a legitimate reason.

What Does Adverse Credit Mean?

Adverse credit is when an individual is unable to make repayments on a loan or credit card. When someone fails to repay what they have agreed to on their credit agreement, lenders report this unpaid debt to a credit reference agency.
