Companies House downloads to become free

18 August 2014

Companies House is to make all of its digital data available free of charges from April 2015 as the UK becomes the first country to establish an open register of business information.

In 2014 over £8.7 million was spent obtaining documents from the Companies House register and the move to make the register free was a key strand of the G8 declaration at the Lough Erne summit in 2013.

At the moment documents are £1 to download from the website and the eradication of this charge will mean that statutory filed documents will now be much more readily available to the public.

Haleys Senior Client Manager Paul Farrington said: “It is now more important than ever that business owners make sure their statutory documents are filed, in order, and do not disclose any undue information. As a result of these changes more people than ever will be able to access your data.”

If you are concerned about the public data that will be available for you and your business please give Paul a call on 01772 741200.
