A deep dive into each ID check
We offer three check types at GoProposal, ensuring there's an option suitable for everyone, regardless of your risk based approach.
All three check types scan for Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), Sanctioned Individuals, Adverse Media, and verify your clients address and date of birth, however there are some key differences between them.
Scan for Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), Sanctioned Individuals, Adverse Media, and verify your clients address and date of birth. It requires a name, date of birth and address and results will be returned in a few minutes. It's great if you meet clients face to face and store photographic evidence of their identification documents outside.
This goes a step further by automatically collecting, verifying and securely storing your clients' identity documents in your Client Record. The document check is done through a mobile friendly web portal and will confirm your clients document is authentic and not forged. This check type also automatically scans for Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), Sanctioned Individuals, Adverse Media, and verifies your clients address and date of birth
This also automatically collects, verifies and securely stores your clients' identity documents in your Client Record. The Biometric Check is done through a mobile app and will confirm that your clients document is authentic, in addition to confirming that your clients face matches that of the document (facial similarity). If you're a virtual accountant and won't meet your clients face to face, the biometric check is recommended if you want complete certainty in your clients' identity. Quite often used by banks and within the legal sector, the Biometric check is the most up to date technology on the market that supports our increasingly virtual and digital ways of working.
What's the key difference between the document and the biometric check?
Whilst the biometric check involves using an app, the document check is done through a mobile friendly web portal. The document check will confirm the authenticity of the Identification document (it's real), whilst the biometric check will do this, in addition to confirming your clients' face matches the person on the provided ID document. If you aren't going to meet your clients face to face, this is the only way to be completely confident in their identity.
