Skip Tracing for Financial Institutions

How can Financial Institutions benefit from our Skip Tracing services?

Skip Tracing Australia provides services to Finance and Credit Providers to assist with collections, asset recovery, claims investigations, risk mitigation, business information, reporting requirements, and debt collection. 

Financial institutions might require skip tracing services for several critical reasons:

Here are some key scenarios Financial Institutions will benefit from using our professional Skip Tracing service.

Debt Collection

One of the primary reasons financial institutions use skip tracing is to locate borrowers who have defaulted on their loans or credit card payments and have become
unresponsive or have moved without leaving a forwarding address.

Fraud Investigation

Skip tracing can be an essential tool in investigating cases of financial fraud, identity theft, or money laundering, where individuals involved may attempt to disappear or
hide their location.

Fraud Detection and Prevention

Our team of Licensed Investigators and Skip tracers are qualified and licensed to investigate potential fraud by locating individuals suspected of fraudulent activities, such as staging accidents or filing false claims, thereby protecting the insurance company from financial losses.

Risk Management

By effectively locating clients or debtors and securing assets or repayments, skip tracers help banks and financial institutions mitigate financial risks, thereby protecting their bottom line.

Legal Proceedings

If a Finance or Credit Proivder is involved in legal proceedings against a client, they may need to serve legal documents. Skip tracers can locate the individuals or entities involved to ensure that they are properly served and the legal process can proceed.

Locating a Driver

For Financial Institutions dealing with Vehicle Insurance, you may need to locate the driver at fault in a vehicle collision, in order to recover vehicle excess costs. With our Skip Tracing services, we can locate them for you.

Asset Recovery

Financial institutions may need to repossess assets when a borrower defaults on a secured loan. If the borrower or the asset (like a vehicle or property) cannot be located,
skip tracing can assist in finding them.

Legal Processes

For the execution of legal processes, such as serving court documents or notices related to bankruptcy filings or litigation, financial institutions may need to locate individuals or businesses.

Legal and Compliance Requirements

Financial Institutions are often required to make diligent efforts to contact policyholders or beneficiaries before escheating funds to the state as unclaimed property. Skip tracers can assist in these efforts, helping the company comply with legal obligations.

Due Diligence

Financial institutions have a duty to maintain accurate customer records. Skip tracing can help locate customers to update contact information, ensure compliance with
regulatory requirements, and maintain communication for account management purposes.

Asset Location

For Finance Providers of vehicles or other assets, you may need to locate and claim assets if the principal fails to meet their obligations. Skip tracers can locate these assets for recovery or liquidation.

Locate a Witness

For Financial Institutions who provide Vehicle or Injury Compensation Insurance, you may need to locate witness to a crash or accident, in order to verify the details of a claim OR, to investigate a fraudulent claim. Our team of Skip Tracers can locate them for you.

By utilising skip tracing services, Financial Institutions can enhance their operational efficiency, reduce financial risks, and ensure compliance with legal and regulatory standards.

Why Outsource?

Outsourcing your skip tracing to professionals rather than using in-house resources can offer several advantages for a company, especially if your business is not specialised in investigative or collection activities.

Here are key reasons to consider outsourcing your skip tracing matters:

Expertise & Experience

Our team of Licensed Private Investigators possess specialised skills, tools, and methodologies that have been earned through years of experience in skip tracing and investigations. We are adept at navigating complex databases, using advanced search techniques, and understanding legal boundaries, which can significantly improve the chances of locating your Subject.

Cost Effectiveness

Establishing an in-house skip tracing operation can be costly, requiring investment in training, software, databases, and personnel. Outsourcing eliminates these overhead costs and converts fixed expenses into variable costs that only occur when services are needed.

Time Efficiency

Professional skip tracers can often locate individuals more quickly than in-house staff due to their expertise and resources. This efficiency allows the company to expedite debt recovery or asset repossession processes, improving cash flow and asset
utilisation. At Skip Tracing Australia, we aim to have your matter completed within 10 Business Days and often have results much sooner than this.


Skip tracers in Australia must adhere to legal and regulatory guidelines in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 and, quite often, the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009. Professional skip tracers are across these regulations and can ensure that
their methods are compliant, reducing the company's risk of legal issues. Our Agents also complete mandatory CPE and Mercantile Compliance training.
