If you’re looking for an API which can provide you with company data at your fingers then we have just the thing. We know we’re biased but our API offers so many things, with information on over 20 million company director records across the UK and Ireland. We use all of our own data enabling you to integrate over 150 different fields into your own software and bespoke applications, with stats going back over 20 years – it’s no wonder our customers love it so much!
What data does the API provide?
Our API can be used for instant access to the following, among many other things:
- Key business financials
- Credit scores
- Shareholder information
- Directors and secretaries
- Trading addresses
- Mortgages and CCJs (County Court Judgments)
You can query the data by using boolean, string and number searches – with the freedom to be as flexible or as narrow as you need. We have added multiple fields into the search engine too, to allow you to derive highly accurate results based on multiple criteria. For example, you can search for a list of companies within a specific postcode that have a turnover of between £7 million and £8 million or a certain SIC Code. Data can then be exported, opened and saved in various different formats.

What our customers say
Here are two testimonials from clients that have used, and love our product:
“Your API integrates like poetry and it’s absolutely perfect for our business requirements. I first tested with the testing API using your supplied documentation, to check the connection code, which worked fine. I then tested the full XML file to check to code which reads the file, which worked fine! So I’m happy to now put these two pieces together and get it all integrated. I can’t believe how easy it is to integrate with, and matches our requirements 100%.” – Will Anderston, web manager at BST Detectable Products
“We’d tried out a number of API or integration services, but the Company Check system stood out for us. It’s easy to use, the Company Check team have been nothing but helpful and have always been on hand to respond to our questions. We were given a tailored service and continue to receive it; we couldn’t recommend their API enough.” – Toby Austin, founder of UKFunders
