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.
