Background checks for the Accounting and Financial Industry are often more in depth than other businesses. In addition to a criminal and sexual offender record search, Crimcheck recommends screening of OFAC and NASD/SEC lists, and verification of professional certifications and licenses such as those maintained by the FINRA, NFA and the NASAA.
Accounting and Finance firms often are in need of corporate due diligence when considering mergers and acquisitions, audit, and client due diligence. Crimcheck provides corporate due diligence services to some of the largest firms in the U.S.
