Protect your accountancy firm with thorough background checks from APCS. Our range of screening services help you make informed hiring decisions and minimise risk. Ensure your clients' financial data is in trusted hands.

As an accountancy firm, your clients entrust you with their sensitive financial information and rely on your team to handle their accounts with the utmost integrity. A single dishonest employee could severely damage your firm’s reputation and put your clients’ finances at risk. That’s why it’s critical to conduct comprehensive background checks on all prospective hires.

At APCS, we offer a range of screening services tailored to the needs of the accountancy sector. Our checks can help you make informed hiring decisions, protect your firm’s reputation, and provide peace of mind to your valued clients.

The Importance of DBS Checks for Accountants

While accountancy roles may not involve working with children or vulnerable adults, DBS checks still play a vital role in the hiring process. A Basic DBS Check reveals any unspent convictions or conditional cautions, giving you insight into an applicant’s criminal history. This information can be invaluable when assessing a candidate’s suitability for a position of financial trust.

Verifying Identities and Right to Work

In addition to criminal record checks, it’s crucial to confirm that your prospective employees are who they claim to be and have the legal right to work in the UK. Our Digital Identity Checks provide a fast, secure way to validate an applicant’s identity using their smartphone. This innovative process eliminates the risk of forged documents and ensures you’re hiring legitimate candidates.

Our Digital Right to Work Checks streamline the process of verifying an employee’s eligibility to work in the UK. By embracing digital identity verification, you can ensure compliance with UK Home Office regulations while saving time and resources compared to manual document checks.

The Benefits of Comprehensive Background Screening

Investing in thorough background checks for your accountancy firm offers numerous benefits:

  1. Risk Reduction: By identifying potential red flags in an applicant’s history, you can minimise the risk of hiring individuals who may engage in fraudulent activities or damage your firm’s reputation.

  2. Client Confidence: Demonstrating your commitment to hiring trustworthy professionals can boost your clients’ confidence in your firm and their willingness to entrust you with their financial matters.

  3. Regulatory Compliance: Conducting appropriate background checks helps ensure your firm complies with industry regulations and standards, reducing the risk of legal and financial penalties.

  4. Time and Cost Savings: Partnering with APCS for your screening needs streamlines the hiring process, saving you time and resources while providing reliable, comprehensive results.
