Financial Records Checks​

Our global financial background checks help you acquire relevant, job-specific insights about candidates you are considering for positions with fiduciary responsibility. Perform permissible and appropriate searches quickly. 

Better Understand Fiscal Responsibility & Avoid "International Gaps"

Before hiring employees who will have access to money, financial information or any type of fiduciary responsibility— regardless of whether it’s an entry-level cashier position or a C-suite post—employers need job-specific finance-related insights about those candidates. In some countries, gaining these insights may be a simple matter of requesting a credit check on the candidate. However, when candidates live—or have lived or worked—in other countries, it becomes more complicated. For instance, credit scores are not regularly available for employment purposes.

First Advantage Knows What Is Available And What Is Not

With three types of financial checks available for employment purposes, organizations can better understand how candidates handle fiscal responsibility without worrying about the “international gaps” that can sometimes occur when candidates have lived in other countries.
