Companies House to open up UK business data to journalists 

Finance and data journalists welcome latest move as accounts for 3 million UK companies are set to go public

Journalists are to gain free access to information on all of the UK’s three million companies from next spring, in the latest move by the British government towards open data.

The UK business registrar, Companies House, has announced it is scrapping the £1 fee charged for each document downloaded from its site and it will make company accounts, shareholding details and director appointments more easily accessible in data form.
