Background checks / Vetting / Due Diligence
Background checks / background screening can be conducted on companies as well as on individuals. Corporate background checks /background screening identify risks in a company which do not appear on a standard corporate balance sheet. Whereas a traditional due diligence looks exclusively at financial information, background searches focuses on more abstract (but just as important) factors in assessing whether a company can be dealt with in all confidence. A typical background check includes the following items:
Existence of the company;
• Full institutional details, including capitalization, directors, commissioners and shareholders and other legal data;
History and business scope of the company;
• Reputation and track record of its directors, executives or other key principals;
• Networks, political links, existence of criminal links,
• Alternative business interests of the company's key principals;
• Civil litigation and/or criminal record relating to the company itself or any of its key principals.
A background check is generally a combination of thorough documentary research and discreet inquiries with sources in the relevant industry who may have dealt with the subject company and its principals, either in a public or private capacity, and are willing to share information as to its credentials and reputation.

Employer Background Verification
As many as half of all applicants provide false information on their applications and/or resumes. When you perform a background check, you get the full picture on a candidate. Hiring new employees shouldn't be a gamble, and it won't be when you complete a partial or full background check.
