Companies Registry

Companies Registry (Companies House) is The office of the Registrar of Companies.

Companies with a registered office in England or Wales are served by the registry at Cardiff; those in Scotland by the registry in Edinburgh. Certain documents lodged there are open to inspection.

These documents include the accounts of limited companies, the annual return, any prospectus, the memorandum and articles of association, and particulars of the directors, the secretary, the registered office, some types of company charge, and notices of liquidation.
