Top 10 Background Check Records for Vetting a Potential Business Partner by

Picking the right business partner is a tricky subject. On one hand, if you pick correctly it can guarantee your success. On the other hand, a bad choice can sink you and leave you with more problems than you ever imagined. A good start for vetting a pote

LOXAHATCHEE, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- You know the old saying "business is business"? It basically means that you shouldn't let your emotions cloud your judgment. Although you may get along great with a potential business partner, it's what you don't know about them that could severely harm you down the road. Do they have a criminal record? Do they have a drug or alcohol problem? Have they been involved in business failures? Did they really graduate from that prestigious school? Were they the head honcho at their old employment?

All of the above questions can be answered with a simple background check. And there are many online background check providers who offer this information at a low cost. All you need is the individuals name, social security number and date of birth along with any education or employment claims they make.

So how do you get this information? Simply ask them. Inform them you need to perform a background check to seal the deal. And follow it up with "It's nothing personal. It's just business.". If they get upset at this then it's a good indicator that there might be something lurking in the shadows.

The top 10 things that can give you a pretty clear picture into a person's background are:

  1. Criminal Records - state, Federal and sex offender.
  2. Driving Records - DWI's or DUI's
  3. Credit Report - credit worthiness
  4. Bankruptcies
  5. Tax Liens
  6. Judgments and Civil Litigation
  7. Defaults
  8. UCC Filings
  9. Education and Previous Employment Verification
  10. Professional Licenses

Armed with the above background check information you can save yourself and your business from the problems caused by a business partner with a checkered past.
