Guidance on finding company data. Please use the menu on the left to explore the guide. Contact your librarian if you need help or advice.

About company information 

Company information refers to reported information about companies including:

  • Company accounts
  • Financial statements
  • Registered addresses
  • The legal form of a company
  • Directors' details
  • SIC codes
  • Share prices

Due to legal reporting requirements in most countries, you will be able to find out more information about publicly listed companies than private limited companies, and even less about sole traders.
