Companies House is a UK Government department charged with the responsibility of forming and dissolving Private Limited Companies in the UK.

As well a registrar and dissolver of British firms, Companies House also stores information about its registrant companies, updating their databases as necessary. Its functions have effectively existed since 1844, with the office’s remit standing at the core of British corporate life. The information granted is publicly available and serves as a point of reference to interested persons.

Handling over 400,000 registrations as well as frequently dissolving out or business or merging enterprises, Companies House continues to be essential for British business bureaucracy.
