Free information about companies

Source: Companies House | | 11/06/2019

A surprising amount of free information about companies is available from Companies House. This is in line with the government’s commitment to free data and ensures that all publicly available digital data held on the UK register of companies is accessible free of charge. These records provide access to over 170 million digital records on companies and directors.

They include:

  • company information, for example registered address and date of incorporation
  • current and resigned officers
  • document images
  • mortgage charge data
  • previous company names
  • insolvency information

Interested parties can also set up a free alert service at Companies House that allows you to receive email alerts of company transactions. The alert tells you instantly what’s been filed as soon as it’s been accepted. Clients can also follow their own company listings to ensure that no untoward filings are made.
