Verifile passes on full DBS savings onto clients

We are pleased to tell you that, from tomorrow (1 Oct), Verifile is reducing the cost of its DBS screening services, saving our clients up to £4 on each individual DBS check.

The reduction in price is due to new pricing legislation for DBS checks, which was passed in Parliament this summer, and we’re gladly passing that saving onto you in full.

The savings for each type of DBS check are as follows:

Type of DBS check Current DBS fee DBS fee from
1 October 2019
DBS fee reduction
Basic DBS check £25.00 £23.00 £2.00
Standard DBS check £26.00 £23.00 £3.00
Enhanced DBS check £44.00 £40.00 £4.00

The £13 fee for clients using the Update Service directly with the DBS will remain the same. Standard and Enhanced DBS checks for volunteers will continue to be exempt from the DBS fee.

Current clients of Verifile will have these savings automatically applied to their accounts from 1 October.

But, if you are new to our business and would like further information about how Verifile can carry out DBS checks on your behalf, and save money, call us on 01234 339 339 or email
