Why does my company status not match Companies House?

The company status shown on Company Check may not necessarily match the status shown on Companies House.


Companies House are concerned with the existence of a live company i.e. not dissolved. The active status at Companies House refers to the existence of the company.


As a credit reference agency, Company Check is concerned with a business' trading status.


If a company files dormant accounts the business is considered non trading and in this case the status will match.
