how to check UK business registration number?


I'm not sure where this thread goes, but if it's not int he appropriate section, please move it.

I have a business registration number from the UK that I need to verify, where should I go to check on it?

Thanks,
Neo

You can get all the details of about the company on the website companieshouse.gov.uk . You can also use their webcrack feature to find about any company.

I must say that this is a great feature, especially when you purchase from a company that seems shaky. It's a shame systems like this aren't available globally, or that there isn't some kind of an international company listing mandate.

Whilst it's beter than most countries, it is only as good, accurate and upto date
as the information provided by the company to 'companies house'.

Plus you have to pay to receive all the information and to see the companies annual accounts.

If the business is a sole trader, then you can't put anything on the companies house register.

A sole trader is not a company so that is kind of obvious really.

It does in some really rare (and obscure, odd) situations. I was when researching the company/business whatever the hell it was.

Well you can have private unlimited companies if that is what you mean.

As a side note.
The same site can be used for checking UK reg. Charities,
which are effectively Ltd Companies.

Also last year[I think] the rules were changed so that there is no longer the need for '2 or more' people to form a Ltd. Co. an Individual can now 'go Ltd.'.

Correct, but if I remember correctly it was October 2008 that particular rule changed. I know that when I incorporated in January last year I was the only person required. Note that by incorporating on your own all it does is limit those with a legal obligation to deal with company matters.
