UK Credit Check
A credit check determines, from several sources, an individual’s financial background. Personal details are checked against Equifax databases to check for County Court Judgements (CCJs), bankruptcies, voluntary arrangements, decrees, and administration orders.
The aim is to help employers understand the financial situation of a candidate and reduce the risk of fraud.
Whilst it is mandatory requirement for financial service employees to have a UK Credit Check, it also provides valuable insight into a new employee’s financial background (and their trustworthiness) a significant benefit in any industry.
The check takes a couple of seconds to apply for through Employment Check Pro, Lite, and the App. Results can be instant to a couple of hours, depending on the complexity of the candidate’s background.
Electronic report (through Employment Check Pro, Lite, and App): Instant to 2 hours
International Sanctions List Check
A sanctions check provides you with information to check if any new employee is connected to terrorism, money laundering, drugs, arms dealing, war crimes, fraud and other illegal activities. The sources include the FBI, The United Nations, The European Union, HMRC, Interpol, and many other international financial government bodies and law enforcement agencies.
It is the only international background check that utilises global databases, and helps organisations ensure employees have no background of international crime, fraud, or will bring about negative media attention.
Thousands of databases are searched, and the result is set to a formula of a 95% match that considers place of birth, date of birth, and spelling of name. From the results provided, you may be required to investigate further based on the details and documents provided by your applicant.
The check takes a couple of seconds to apply for through the system.
Electronic results: Instant to 2 hours (average)
