Companies House has upgraded its beta service to offer online access to its register of disqualified directors as part of the government’s move to make more data available free of charge
The disqualified directors register is now part of the public beta search service launched by Companies House in June 2015. This provides access to over 170m digital records on companies and directors including financial accounts, company filings and details on directors and secretaries throughout the life of the company.
It is now possible to search by officer’s name and display their company appointments. The company overview also includes any previous names registered and the company’s nature of business.
Users of the service can find up-to-date information on all disqualified directors including name, address, disqualification reason, start and end date.
Companies House says that since its launch last year, transactions on the beta service have risen from 120,000 to over 2.5m per day.
It is not necessary to register to access company details, company officer details, or view the disqualified directors’ database. Details are here
