Hi

I have just secured my first contract and I am presently going through the process of setting up a Ltd Company which I need for next week.

If I had a criminal record, would this stop me from setting up a Ltd Company or registering for VAT???

Thx

No problem, carry on.

Would the client or agency ask or do a criminal check, or would this only be the case for banking or working with financial information say?

Normally they will inform you before doing a CRB check and usually it is the end client if it is a bank or such like. If you are worried you can PM me.

Ok. Thanks Paddy.

Not a bank, so unlikely to ask. Bit stupid a few years back so just getting back on track. Thx

No, I don't think it would - unless it was something to do with a company which was subject to a fraud investigation and you were disqualified as director.

Depending on the job, agencies may ask about your past. Can't remember if I've been asked or not but I've certainly never actually had it checked. Banking and security cleared jobs would be an exception to this rule. The convictions become "spent" after a while and you don't have to declare them, isn't that right?

Good luck and hopefully you can put the past well behind you.

I have been asked to supply my own criminal check, contract was not for a bank. But it was a finance system. I used

Might be worth doing your own check and see what comes back. Then you will know if you have anything to worry about. :nerd
