Why do I need online adverse financial checks?

If you're recruiting for a role that involves handling money or setting up suppliers, you need to be sure that any candidate you’re considering has no history of financial mismanagement so you can feel confident about taking them on.

Our adverse financial check complies with the FCA Certification Regime and reveals vital financial information about new hires so you can make an informed decision about who’s right for the job.

By also enabling you to access the financial records of existing employees, our financial status checking system reduces the risk of any emerging issues putting your company in harm’s way. Conducting rechecks for existing employees ensures that you’re aware, should their situations change.
