New search system for Companies House

10 Apr 2023

In October 2020 Companies house announced the closure of Companies House Direct (CHD) and WebCHeck.  It is now confirmed that both services will close on 30th November 2023 and be replaced by Find and Update Company Information Service.

Current features include:

  • advanced company search
  • dissolved company search
  • company snapshot reports
  • alphabetical search
  • ordering facility for certificates, certified documents and missing images

The Find and update company information service is a fully accessible service and has already replaced the majority of the functionality provided by CHD and WebCHeck.

All records of companies dissolved since January 2010 are available on the Find and update company information service. We’re continuing to keep records of dissolved companies for 20 years from the date of dissolution, and our long-term intention is to make all these records available for free on the Find and update company information service.

However, dissolved records from before January 2010 up to 20 years from the date of dissolution will not be available on the service until the measures relating to suppression of personal information in the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill are implemented.
