Company Searches and Credit Checks

Please note this page allows you to conduct four different types of searches for companies house reports.

In order to conduct a search you must be a registered user of this site and you must be logged in (you must have a valid user cookie on your machine).

Once you have searched for the report you would like and found it, you will only be able to purchase the report if you have provided billing information. If you have not provided billing details you will be prompted to do so when you try to view the report.
