Independent Check Ltd is based in Cardiff and was set up in late 2012 as a company to distribute the Independence Checker software, the system which helps IFAs provide evidence of their independent position and advice, meeting the new RDR rules laid out and introduced in 2013.
During 2013 the Company started to produce guides for financial advisers, as a result of a growing number of requests for such guides. This led on to the development of the white-labelled guides service being formally launched in November 2013; this service has grown to include a “content and writing service” where we produce documents, guides, web site content and infographics to order.
In 2014 this division of the Company became known as IC Guides.
In 2015 this was extended to produce guides for Accountants.
In 2016, again due to demand from existing customers, the business added website services, offering accountants and financial services intermediaries (IFAs, Financial Planners, Estate Planning specialists etc.) website development and content support.
In 2017, the company has formed key partner arrangements with the leading intermediary Apps provider MyFirmsApp and also with 121 Business Network, extending the wider support being given to leading financial firms and accountants.
Independent Check is a committed supporter of the Intermediary and Accountancy Sectors; passionately pursuing activities and offering services which will enhance this important part of the Financial Services market well into the future.
