Comply With Regulation

Use regulation to improve business operations and customer management.

The UK government has made it clear that determining consumer indebtedness and affordability is the responsibility of lenders. And there's also re-verification, anti-money laundering and Know Your Customer regulation to keep on top of.

Hardwiring compliance into your systems and decision-making processes is a way to show your commitment to meeting these legal requirements. Plus, using regulation as an incentive to treat customers fairly and drive business performance can deliver tangible benefits. Compliance is compulsory – so why not make it simple?

Why choose Equifax?

Equifax's data intelligence can help you meet responsible lending and affordability best practices, for example by:

  • Checking whether individuals have previously been sanctioned for anti-money laundering or terrorist funding, by cross-referencing details against official records
  • Spotting warning signs, based on precedents built up over many years, so you can identify individuals that warrant a more thorough investigation
  • Identifying a business's directors and shareholders by cross-referencing details against our rich databases, so you can assess the risk they represent as individuals as well as collectively.

Let us do the diligence and you'll save your business time, money and resources. And not only will you be protected from regulatory fines – your important commercial decisions will be better supported as well.
