What is a company registration number?



I’m being asked to provide my company registration number to register for Corporation Tax and VAT but I have no idea what that is or where to find it. I just thought I would have to give them my company name and registered office address! Can you tell me where I can find it please. Thanks.



Don’t worry, we get asked this all the time!

Your company registration number is stated on your certificate of incorporation and share certificates. It’s 8 characters long - it might be all numbers, but it may start with two letters.

You can also find it by looking up your company name on Companies House WebCHeck and Beta services, both of which are free to use. Just type in the name of your business and your registration number should be displayed alongside.
