Why do you have a non-limited record for my limited company?

Why is there sometimes both a limited and non-limited listing for a company?

This will be the case most commonly as sole traders will trade as a non-limited company before becoming a limited business, and at that stage we would hold both a non-limited and limited record.

We do have a monthly data cleaning process whereby we will match non-limited and limited records and remove non-limited listings that are no longer relevant.

However, there will be some overlap as when a company is newly incorporated there is very little information available from the official sources we use for our limited company database.

We also keep our non-limited records when a company is dormant or non-trading as, as with new incorporations, there is very little public data available for these type of entities, and the non-limited records supplement what is available.

Unfortunately there is also occasionally overlap for older companies whose non-limited record does not link well with the limited entity but that is not a non-trading or dormant entity.

Can you remove the duplicate non-limited entry?

We usually do not remove non-limited records if the limited company is Newly Incorporated and have yet to file their first years accounts, as described above, as the limited company may file dormant / non trading accounts.

If you find a historic non-limited entry that you would like us to investigate for possible removal, please submit a ticket with the details (at the top of the page).
