Business background checks however, are far lesscommonplace; but why? Excluding small daily purchases and transactions with historicallyreputable companies, the level of trust you (or your company) extend to a corporation you choseto deal with can be extraordinary. Yet conducting background research on companies is rare incomparison with screening individuals.Business background checks are complex because businesses play by a different set of rules.Realistically, you and I cannot drop our identity and start over when things go bad, our debtsbecome too great, or our reputations become tarnished. Corporations can and often do. Along withcompletely dissolving a business or filing for bankruptcy, corporations may operate underalternative names known as "DBAs" (Doing Business As), appear as local companies online, butphysically exist overseas, or be registered as foreign corporations while soliciting business withinyour state. Proper screening requires a broad and extensive expertise. Fewer companies offerbusiness screening for these reasons. As always, watch out for companies online claiming toinstantly tell you everything about a company for a small fee along with a subscription to theirdatabase. There is no one size fits all method of conducting business background research andthorough results can and will not be instant.Structure is Key!The structure of a business background check is best determined by the purpose of the check andthe level of risk. Here are just a few common needs for business background checks and sensiblecorresponding screening packagesLevel One: Personal Consumer ProtectionA basic business background check doesnt have to cost an arm and a leg. A "level one" businessbackground check can be performed in the area of $50. If youve ever had the misfortune ofdealing with a company that you paid money to up front and never received a service, or had torepair a situation caused by bad service, the fee for a basic business background check will feellike the best money youve ever spent. As an example, a level one background check bestcorresponds to the following needs.Youre in the market to...Hire a contractor.Utilize a dog walking service.
  • 2. Retain a babysitter or nanny through a service.Move grandma into a retirement home.A "Level One" screening package would generally answer the following questions.Are they incorporated or registered with the state?Have they been in business for a significant amount of time to have "expertise"?Are they a DBA "Doing Business As" another name?Are there unresolved complaints filed against them with the Better Business Bureau?Have their past clients filed lawsuits against them for breach of contract or any other reasons?Do they utilize criminal background checks on their own employees?Level Two: Large Personal or Business to BusinessTransaction.Maybe its property, machinery, equipment, vehicles, or even a timeshare. Whateverthe case, you (or your company) will be entrusting this business with a large sum of money. A"Level Two" business background check would include the basic research of a "Level One"screening package and also go a few steps further. For example, we would seek to answer thefollowing questions for our "Level Two" business background check:Are they Incorporated or registered with the state?Are they licensed and or Insured?Have they been in business for a significant amount of time to have "expertise"?Are they a DBA "Doing Business As" another name?Possible additional searches on DBAs discoveredAre there unresolved complaints filed against them with the Better Business Bureau?Have their past clients filed lawsuits against them for breach of contract or other reasons?Who are the principals of the company?Have the principals of the company filed for bankruptcy multiple times?Does the owner or principal have litigation against them from prior clients?Does pending litigation or tax liens, suits, or other judgment put the owner/principal in a financiallydifficult situation? (You dont want your money going to pay off other debts instead of paying for
  • 3. materials, labor, etc.)Level Three: Business to Business VentureOnce your company joins forces with another company for a project, marketing campaign or otherventure, their skeletons can potentially become yours. Their reputation can be reflected on you,and sometimes, their legal problems and can become your legal problems. A business to businessventure is too significant not to invest in a thorough business background check. Once again,building on key parts of the "Level One" and "Level Two" business background checks, importantresearch would include...Are they incorporated or registered with the state?Are they licensed and or Insured, and to what degree?Have they been in business for a significant amount of time to have "expertise"?Are they a DBA "Doing Business As" another name? (Possible additional searches on DBAsdiscovered)Are there unresolved complaints filed against them with the Better Business Bureau?Have their past clients or business partners filed lawsuits against them for breach of contract orother reasons?Who are the principals of the company?Have the principals of the company filed for bankruptcy multiple times?Does the owner or principal have litigation against them from prior clients?Does pending litigation or tax liens, suits, or other judgment put the owner/principal in a financiallydifficult situation? (You dont want your money going to pay off other debts instead of paying formaterials, labor, services etc.)Are the owners or principals involved with other corporations that would pose a conflict of interest?Is this company as prosperous as claimed? (Its not difficult or terribly expensive to make aprofessional looking website. Whats behind the website is what really matters.)How long has the website existed?How much traffic does their site receive?Who links to them?How much are they spending to market their website or product online?
  • 4. Whats the reputation of the business online?Whos talking about them and whats being said?If no "buzz" is out there, why not?The examples could certainly go on. These basic packages canbe modified for use in intellectual property research, business profiling for acquisition, "know yourclient" regulations in the financial industry and other specific needs. The bottom line is, spendingroughly one percent of the "purchase price" or estimated cost of the transaction can save youexponentially over the cost and time of dealing with a irresponsible or deceptive business after thedamage has been done.
