Untitled[edit]

Should Companies House be spelt with an apostrophe, "Companies' House"? If not, what gramatical rule applies?

While there may be a grammatical rule that is being broken, we report usage as provided by the organisation, and so no apostrophe is used. Noisy | Talk 11:05, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Free Access to Companies House Data[edit]

Companies House only provides a small subset of data for free to the public. Information about company directors (as highlighted in the research noted in the article) can only be accessed after opening a commercial account with CH, and paying an access fee for every record.

http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/toolsToHelp/WCInfo.shtml

The cost of this research precludes the sort of non-commercial financial research which occurs in the United States; research that is enabled by the SEC's policy of sharing data wholesale to the public.

1844[edit]

What happened in 1844? Presumably before then you needed a charter to form a company and that was when the current system whereby anyone can make one was bruoght in? Morwen - Talk 21:02, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I'll head out and get a photo of Companies House Cardiff when I can 81.106.129.49 15:15, 23 August 2007 (UTC) See Joint Stock Companies Act 1844. Twrw 20:50, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I was looking for a list of the oldest surviving companies - anyone know of a list online of companies from 1844 onwards that still exist? Oldest I've found so far is 1913, but I'm sure there are others.83.148.147.99 09:00, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Is it really appropriate to link to various formation agents on this page?83.148.147.99 09:00, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

NO, it is not. I've removed those which have returned (yet again). 218.111.148.233 08:16, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

You must have been searching a long way back to find this, but whatever else it might be it isn't sock puppetry, just a conflict of interest. — Blue-Haired Lawyer t 23:14, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
