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, Recruitment Agencies, Construction companies, Retailers, Facilities Management companies, Law firms and Security firms.


TrustID identity checking solutions and services

Our range of identity scanning options helps you to quickly and confidently verify 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.

The information and results are automatically archived, so your organisation can demonstrate compliance with 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

Are you manually checking passports for onboarding?

In this era of increased compliance requirements and rising cases of fraud, carrying out robust checks on identity documents has never been more important. Passports are the number one document to check; no other document carries more weight in establishing a person’s identity.

We've produced a Guide to Passports to help you with these checks. Our guide: 

  • highlights the main security features of a passport
  • outlines how to verify them
  • lists the most common methods used in their forgery
  • explains how to spot the clues.
