Our History

Our Beginnings

ProCRB was first incorporated in May 2001 by Graham Newton who still actively manages the operation now. Many of the ProCRB clients know Graham very well and he actively oversees much of what happens and takes a keen interest in the many legislative changes.

The company started (as many do) with humble beginnings operating with a small team from a highstreet location in Surbiton, Surrey.  The picture of the blue shop shows our initial shopfront offering accountancy and payroll work, we shortly after started offering DBS checks, but never did get around to updating the sign. As our DBS client base is scattered all over the country, we actually have very few clients who come to see us (although we do have a few who pop in for a cup of tea and a natter whilst dropping off paper forms).

Where are we now?

ProCRB now operates from a converted grade II listed mansion in Surrey.  It’s a lovely location with beautiful gardens and even a listed windmill in the grounds. In the summer the staff will often have the windows open and the sounds of the birds singing are often commented on by our clients.  Don’t be fooled by the traditional exterior though as the building is a hub of business activity with excellent security and IT infrustructure allowing us to support our clients in a professional and secure environment.  Clients are welcome to visit to talk through any complex situations but please call in advance so we can arrange a meeting room.

ProCRB is not only a DBS checking company, in addition we provide payroll and employment law support for many families who employ domestic staff across the UK and also actively provide payroll services for many businesses ranging from the small to the multi-national and international.  In fact we have many clients who span more than one of our company sectors, so we may provide them with payroll and DBS checks as well.
