Company API

All the necessary company information you need in 1 API call

The Company API provides risk-relevant company data needed to evaluate a submission. It includes information about registered companies and the trade that the company operates in.
Depending on the company information that you input, the Company API will match to a valid registered company and provide you all the information you have requested as attributes.

Company Search

The Company API supports company names and additional information that can be helpful to find the right company:

  • Country Code
    The countryCode input parameter specifies the country where you want the API to search for registered companies. Currently, only GB is supported to search through all the companies in Great Britain.
  • Postcode (optional)
    Entering the postcode of one of the company's trading addresses in the input parameter postcode can be used to help our search algorithm find the right entity.
  • Companies House Number (optional)
    You can also enter a Companies House registration number in the input parameter companiesHouseNumber. Please note this parameter is not compatible with company name and/or postcode.

Data Menu

You can select from the data menu which attributes you would like to receive for the company. For more information about the data source, coverage, update frequency and other information for each attribute, please see each individual page.
