These data are provided in a series of snapshots and in the original format.

Each snapshot of the data records the companies present as of 31 March of a particular year in a flattened CSV file.

The original data are organised in 10 tables, in which the company table is the central table and all other tables are linked to the company table via companyid. The Data Supply table is split into two files and should be download together for unzipping.

Fusion Data Science has been collecting the Companies House data into a database, since May 2012. This has enabled them to infer a history of company formations, dissolutions and other events that the monthly snapshot doesn’t capture. The database contains all 6.5 million companies, and other corporate entities, which have existed since that time rather than the 4.2 million contained in the latest Companies House data snapshot.
