What is a Credit Check?
An APCS credit check will disclose any County Court Judgments, bankruptcies, administration orders and insolvencies in the last 6 years.
Can anyone have a Credit Check?
In the UK’s current financial climate, it is more important than ever to be aware of an employee’s true financial situation, especially if they are handling your business’ finances! Knowing the financial background of your employees is becoming increasingly important to employers, and is no longer limited to those directly involved in the financial sector.
Can I refuse employment to an applicant that has failed a Credit Check?
If the report comes back as medium or high risk, you have the right to refuse employment to a potential employee as their current financial situation could impact their ability to perform in their job role.
How much is a Credit Check, and how do I order it?
The full cost of a credit check is £15.00, including VAT. Please follow the steps below to order a credit check with APCS!
