Free access to over 170 million company records

I'm delighted to tell you, that from today, you can now access all digital data free of charge using our new service, some 170 million company records.

This makes the UK register one of the most open in the world and the UK economy one of the most transparent.

For the first time, access to company financial accounts and information about directors and secretaries as well as other information throughout the life of the company is now available free of charge.

Consumers and technology providers can now access real time updates on companies. This can be done either through the web service or the application programming interface (API).

This is great news for the economy, giving £6 million back to public funds and removing barriers that will allow easy access to public information about companies. It's an opportunity for people to use this data in new and innovative ways.

The team here have done a fantastic job. We've listened to our customers to understand what they want and designed a tremendous service.

Try it out for free and let us know what you think.
