Set Up & Administration Costs
Registration with Care Check is completely free – organisations only pay for the Disclosure and Barring Service Checks (DBS) that they submit. We do not charge any licensing fees or set up fees for all levels of DBS checks.
Unlike our competitors, we do not hold any minimum or maximum thresholds for Disclosure and Barring Service Checks (DBS) – if a company only requires a Disclosure and Barring Service check for one member of staff, we can accommodate this requirement. Conversely, if an organisation wants to submit large numbers of criminal record checks per month, we can also assist with this criterion.
PLEASE NOTE – The Disclosure and Barring Service have announced a reduction in their prices as of the 1st October 2019 and the below prices will reflect this as of that date. For more information regarding the DBS price decrease please click here

Care Check offers clients the benefit of four different payment methods to suit one’s preference.
If your organisation wants the applicant to pay for their own application, we can create the company account on an APPLICANT PAYMENT status. The applicant will have to pay by debit or credit card before they submit an application.
Alternatively, if an organisation pays for their staff checks, Care Check will arrange the account to be fixed to an ORGANISATION PAYMENT and the company can pay by debit or credit card. This format eliminates the hassle of payment due dates and making payments.
Online payments are powered by Opayo – money will be debited from a bank account within 2-5 working days and the reference ‘CARECHECK’ will appear your statement.
If you do not have the capacity to pay by card, we can offer the option of paying by invoice. All invoices will be raised at the time of application for smaller clients and a fixed 15-day payment term applies to this option.
For larger clients we can arrange a PAY MONTHLY account status. On the 1st of every month an invoice will be sent with a breakdown of all the DBS checks a company has submitted. There is a fixed 15-day term to pay this outstanding balance. Payment can be made via BACS transfer, cheque or alternatively you can call a team member on 0333 777 8575.
The table above identifies the pricing brackets we have implemented and the discounts you can receive when you submit a certain amount of applications per month. The more DBS checks you submit, the lower the admin fee you are charged. If you are processing larger numbers of checks, please contact us on 0333 777 8575 to discuss a more discounted admin fee.
Please note: All DBS check total prices are inclusive of VAT and admin fees. If you would like to discuss your payment options in further details, please contact us today on 0333 777 8575 and we would be happy to help.
