About Companies House

Companies House is an executive agency of the Department for Business and Trade. We incorporate and dissolve limited companies. We register company information and make it available to the public. 

The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act will give Companies House the power to play a more significant role in tackling economic crime and supporting economic growth. Find out how this will affect you and your company.

We use our blog to:  

  • provide updates on the ECCT Act
  • issue helpful guidance for companies 
  • provide updates on how our transformation programme is progressing 

Our colleagues also share insights about themselves and their work, our services and what it’s like to work at Companies House.
