Companies House




Companies House is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience - regardless of ability or browsing technology and including those who have visual, hearing, motor and cognitive impairments.

This website endeavours to conform to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. Our online services (Companies House Direct, WebCHeck and WebFiling) may not meet these guidelines at this present time but we are in the process of developing them.

This website is built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and Cascading Style Sheets. We design the site with usability and accessibility in mind.
