There’s a great new website at www.duedil.com. It seems to have all (or most) of the information you would have had to pay for at Companies House. Great tool for finding out a bit more about the companies you’re working with – or considering working with. It even gives maps showing “who owns whom” in corporate structures.
They seem to prefer you to sign up via LinkedIn, but you can also just use your email address and a password, which I prefer.
It’s free so far – let’s hope it stays that way.
