Our Charges

Acorn Direct is dedicated to providing a cost effective service with no registration fee or hidden charges; what you see below is what you pay. The only exception would be for additional postage charges for the return of identification documents.

Who pays and when?

If your employer is paying for your Disclosure then we will invoice them directly. If you are responsible for your own fees we will invoice you. In both cases payment must be made before we send your application form to the DBS.
