How it works


Who already relies on TrustID?

Our flexible, cost-effective document checking services help an increasing number of public and private sector clients achieve high levels of compliance, greater financial protection and brand security. Our clients include NHS trusts, Councils, Housing Associations, Hotels, Construction companies, Retailers, Facilities Management companies, Recruitment Agencies and Security firms.


TrustID identity checking software

Our range of scanning solutions help you quickly validate a wide range of identity documents - including passports, visas and residence permits - with only minimal training required.

After capturing both images and data, via a scanner or mobile device, our software processes and cross-references the information to confirm whether the document is valid and that the photograph on the document matches the person presenting it.

With all the information and results automatically archived, organisations are able to demonstrate a commitment and compliance to identity checking without the need for storing multiple photocopies – a significant saving in both time and administration.


Achieving compliance with TrustID


If your organisation is required to carry out KYC or AML checks, TrustID identity scanning can save you time and money.

Right to Work

All employers are required to prove the identity of their employees and their entitlement to work in the UK. Our document checking software helps employers avoid exposure to fines with robust, auditable checks.

Right to Rent

If you are a landlord or letting agent, from 1st February, you are responsible for Right to Rent checks. TrustID scanning solutions can help you quickly and easily establish the validity of documents presented for identity verification purposes

Right to a licence checks introduced for local authorities

As part of the Immigration Act 2016, on 1st December the government introduced additional guidance for licensing authorities on how to check the immigration status of people who apply for a taxi or private hire vehicle licence.
From this date, licence applications are subject to immigration checks to prevent them being issued to anyone who does not have the right to work in the UK. More details on right to a licence checks can be found here.
Our electronic identity checking solutions can simplify these checks. With a consistent, reliable and easy scanning process, authorities can quickly integrate document checks into the application process for anyone applying for operator or PHV or taxi driver licences.
