The Companies House leads the Commercial Register in the United Kingdom. It is - unlike in Germany - not a court, but a Ministry of Economic Affairs presented administrative authority with headquarters in Cardiff and offices in London and Edinburgh.
The task of the Companies House is the registration and cancellation of companies under UK law in the register. It examines and also stores reportable information of the companies and makes them available to the public for inspection available. For companies in England or Wales, the head office in Cardiff or London office and for Scottish companies only the branch in Edinburgh is responsible.
