Following the government's response to the Corporate Transparency and Register Reform consultation, Companies House has
stopped removing dissolved records from the Find and Update company information service
added the records of all companies dissolved since January 2010 to the Find and Update company information service
Previously, records of dissolved companies were removed from this service after 6 years (from the date of dissolution).
As part of their commitment to enhancing corporate transparency, they will continue to keep records of dissolved companies for
20 years from the date of dissolution. These records are currently available on other Companies House products for a fee.
Their long term intention is to make these dissolved records available for free on the Find and Update company information service.
But they will not do this until the law is changed to allow greater protection of personal information on the public register.
It is important that they balance corporate transparency with personal data privacy concerns.
If you are currently a company officer (or were previously), you may wish to review your
company records to check if you will be affected by this change.
