Search Overview

This site provides a searchable index of all the electronically filed accounts made available by Companies House through their Free Accounts Data Product.

Search can operate in one of two modes:

  • Filing Information Search: Data reported in the filings is searched, and all matched sets of accounts are listed alongside basic information about the filing company.
  • Basic Company Information Search: The basic company information is searched and matching companies displayed, with all the accounts filed electronically by those companies listed alongside them.

On the left of the page is a set of filter fields and values, with the number of search results matching each value displayed. Clicking on a field value limits the displayed search results to just those containing the selected value.

Advanced Search Syntax

Search terms will normally be matched against a set of fields in the index including the company name, company number and address. In "Basic Company Information" mode dissolved names will also be included. It is possible to query against other fields using the syntax: FIELD_NAME:VALUE. The fields that can be searched vary depending on whether you're searching in filing or basic company information modes, lists of fields that can be searched are below. The value "*" is a wildcard that will match anything.

Numeric fields can be searched by range, for example Filing.TurnoverGrossOperatingRevenue:[1000000 TO 10000000] in "Filing Information" mode will list companies that reported a turnover of 1 to 10 million. "*" can be used to create an open-ended range such as Filing.TurnoverGrossOperatingRevenue:[10000000 TO *] (those companies that reported a turnover of 10 million or more).
