The Buy with Confidence scheme is a trader approval scheme run by Slough Borough Council’s trading standards team. This is to help businesses comply with the law while improving consumer protection through a partnership approach. It is open to any business in Slough and surrounding areas.
Trading standards do not vouch for the financial stability of any company or for their health and safety procedures. All information provided is to assist consumers in exercising their own best judgement. All information is provided in good faith but no guarantee is given or implied as to the accuracy of the information provided.
At present there is no membership fee to pay if your business is in the Slough Borough Council area, but this will change subject to regional agreement. We will do an Experian check on all applicants, the cost of which is a fixed £25. This should be sent with your application. If your business is outside of the Slough Borough Council area, additional fees apply.
The applicants who work in or around other people’s homes or with vulnerable people will also have to pay for a basic disclosure check. For more information on how to apply and the time taken to process the disclosure please visit the Disclosure Scotland website or call 03000 2000 40.
