The Find a Firm side tab which provides access to the latest information on all the live companies at Companies House has been improved by:

  1. Allowing the search returns to run to 10,000 records rather than just 300
  2. Listing the SIC code report as well as the researched report in which each company is listed
  3. Making the view of the data displayed customisable and including a new more detailed view of the financials.

These improvements are shown in the video below:
