Data Location


The Registrar General's Department has a free company search feature which allows users to look up company names and registry numbers:

It can also be browsed by entering a space as the search term, though with a limit of 100 search results displayed at a time.

There are no other details provided and it is unclear how often the database is updated.

Reviewer comments

I have deemed the dataset's existence as "unsure" as the information available doesn't satisfy the minimum criteria for a companies register.
