Providing Identification and Registration

Sole Trader or Partnership - UK Residents Only

If you have purchased an address service or ongoing services from us we need you to provide identification documents so that we can conduct background checks.

What documents do we need?

  • Registration Form - Completed and Signed
  • Photo Identification - Passport or Driving Licence
  • Address Proof - Utility Bill (Gas, Electric, Water), Bank Statement, Council Tax Bill, Landline Phone Bill (not mobile phone). This should be issued within the last 3 months.

For Partnerships we need these documents for each of the partners in the business.

We will then verify the documents you provide by conducting a 'soft search' of your credit file. This search has no impact on the person’s credit rating and is not seen by anyone searching the credit file for lending purposes. A soft search is the same search recorded when you view your own credit file or apply for an insurance product. This soft search is purely used to verify identity and in this case to verify your documents without seeing the originals. If you, the owner of the document, does not agree please choose the option to send us the original documents or a solicitor/notary certified copy by post.

Thank you for completing the registration process.

We understand providing the registration form and documentation is time consuming and administrative. This is a legal requirement and we appreciate customers supplying these as quickly as possible. Without correct identification we cannot provide services. 

Identification must be provided before you start using our service. More details can be found here.
