About National Business Register

Established in 1984 the National Business Register provides data on all 10 million UK businesses, companies, trade marks and brands.

An entrepreneur can access all this combined data free of charge to help in choosing the right identity for their new enterprise. One of the biggest threats to a new business is mistakenly copying someone else's established name, in the same type of trade, whether locally or nationally. Our unique search facility solves this problem and we also provide full information advice and support in setting up a new business, company, trade mark and domain name.

All this information is available online with each section colour coded for ease of use, you can also speak to one of our business advisors on 0800 069 9090 (freephone).
