About Companies House

This blog has been set up to let those either working or with an interest in Companies House share their thoughts and experiences. We would like to hear from you!

This blog is a place for staff from Companies House, across all our sites – in Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Belfast, to share their personal experiences of the work they do.

Invited guest bloggers will also share their knowledge and experience of how they use and work with our information.

We incorporate and dissolve limited companies, register the information companies are legally required to supply, and make that information available to the public. There are more than 4 million limited companies registered in the UK, and over 500,000 new companies are incorporated each year.

Our main responsibilities are to:

  • incorporate and dissolve limited companies
  • examine and store all company information required by law given to us
  • make all information given to us available to the public in the official government register of UK companies
