I encourage all BIALL members who use Companies House documents to fill in this survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/InfoTrack-Companies-House
It has been compiled by Infotrack in conjunction with Companies House and the aim is to demonstrate the need for full access to company filings. As many of you will be aware, Companies House have removed some records from Companies House Direct. These have not been transferred to https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/
This survey is designed to demonstrate to Companies House how lawyers and researchers access and use information. In particular, it is designed to prove a continuing need for company documents more than 20 years old and for those which relate to a dissolved company.
All feedback from this survey will be shared with Companies House as they continue to keep their document retention policy under review.
The survey will run until midday on Friday 16th November. As an added inducement, Infotrack are offering respondents the chance to be entered in a prize draw. The first prize is a Virgin Experience Day and the second prize is a Champagne Gift Set.
