What is the Companies House app?


Hey there. I’m checking out different admin options for managing my limited company, and I’m pleased to see Companies House has got an app. Does anybody know what it’s all about and what you can do on it?



The Companies House app is a great little facility that allows you to search, store and sort company data on your mobile phone or tablet device. It’s essentially an app of Companies House Beta Service, so you can search your own company or any of the other 3 million UK companies registered at Companies House.

There is no need to register to use the app. It is free to download and use, and it’s compatible with Android 2.3.3 and Apple iOS 6.0 or later on the following devices: iPhone 3GS or later; iPad 2 or later; iPod Touch 4th generation or later.

By downloading the app, you will be able to carry out the following tasks from your mobile device:

  • View company addresses, appointments and filing history
  • Access a company’s current list of director and secretary appointments
  • Check filing deadlines for annual accounts and annual returns
  • Receive notifications if a company requires attention - e.g. overdue accounts/returns
  • Sort company data by various fields and create a Favourites list
  • View Companies House statistics

I’d definitely recommend this app. It’s so user-friendly and it will make life a lot easier, especially if you want to access information quickly whilst you’re on the go.

You can download the app in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
