What are the pass-through fees on my invoice?

Sometimes also called surcharges, additional fees can appear on your monthly invoice.

Updated over a week ago

Pass-through fees from states, counties, and DMVs are an unwelcome but unavoidable aspect of background screening. We'll be honest, we don't love them either! That said, we want to be transparent and make you aware of any costs that may be involved when screening your candidates.

  • State Court Fees - In some states, counties pool results into one state database.

  • State DMV Fees - All DMVs charge a fee to pull a Motor Vehicle Report (MVR).

  • County Access Fees - Roughly 10% of counties charge fees to access court data.

  • Employment Verification Fees - Charged to YardStik by third-party verification companies.
