  • Managing credit and credit related accounts or facilities
  • Recovering debt
  • Checking details on proposals and claims for all types of insurance
  • Checking details of job applicants and employees

Electronic Verification Guide

Principality is bound by the UK anti-money laundering regulations, which apply to all of our customers.  To comply with the regulations we will attempt to verify your identity electronically, matching your information against information held by credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. Details of credit histories are not made available to us and, although the data provider logs the search, it cannot be used for future credit assessment purposes and does not affect your credit rating.

Where we cannot obtain an electronic match we may ask you to provide physical forms of identification, details of which can be found on Proving Your Identity.
