All material information relating to your application must be disclosed. Failure to disclose material information will be treated as prima facie evidence of dishonest behaviour.
If you are seeking approval as an authorised role holder, you should bear in mind that Rule 14 of the SRA Authorisation Rules allows us to seek other information relating to your application and this would normally include Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure.
It is therefore highly likely that matters will come to light.
