The Home Office updates the list of disqualified persons shared with Cifas for the purpose of the 2014 and 2016 Acts on a weekly basis, and banks and building societies refer to this data when checking applications for new accounts and reviewing existing accounts.

The Home Office set up a mechanism to enable financial organisations to report, on a voluntary basis at any time, new information on other financial product applications to Home Office intelligence teams.
