Standard Credit Check

Our robust reports clearly highlight any missed payments, defaults, reveal any county court judgments (CCJs), bankruptcies, individual voluntary arrangements (IVAs), decrees and sequestration orders for the job applicant (including the status of them).

Typically the credit check assesses information from the last six years - the maximum time county court judgments (CCJs) remain publicly available.

CAIS database

We can also process a further check using CAIS data (where permitted) allowing us to review candidates full financial history including current accounts, credit cards, secured and unsecured debt, defaults and other measures of financial probity.
