How do the Subscription Packages work?

Subscriptions Packages are ideal for any Company Searches Made Simple customers who purchase multiple company credit reports or director reports over a monthly / yearly period.

Here’s how it works…

We add a set number of credits to your account; these must then be used within a set period of time (monthly or yearly depending on the package).

1 credit = 1 product

This could mean:

• 1 Fully Comprehensive Company Report
• 1 Director Report
• 1 Company Document
• 1 Lifetime Company Tracker

It’s totally up you. The only thing that you can’t spend your credits on is another Subscription Package!

Pricing and Packaging:

For more information take a look at our dedicated Subscription Packages page.

What they are saying about Company Searches Made Simple on Feefo (10th-17th January)

Feefo is a ‘customer review and feedback system for service and products’. After a purchase is made on any of our sites (Companies Made Simple, London Presence, Business Training Made Simple and here on Company Searches Made Simple), we ask our customers to anonymously give us a rating and review. We then have the opportunity to respond to the review. Ultimately we use these reviews to tailor our service.

At the moment all reviews are accessible directly from Feefo, and now we’re going to start publishing the most recent Company Seraches Made Simple reviews (positive and negative) here on the blog too.

First up, here’s the ratings guide:




And now the reviews:

Finally, our overall rating for the last 6 months:






We’ll publish more reviews in the coming weeks!

How to switch your Company Trackers On & Off

Company trackers are great for monitoring your competitors (and protecting your own company against fraud).

Here’s how they work…

We email you whenever the tracked company files something with Companies House. This could be a director resignation, a change in registered office, a filing of annual accounts – basically anything that needs to go through Companies House.

To purchase a company tracker (£2.50):

1. Search for the relevant company from our homepage
2. Select View Details next to the correct company
3. Under Company Tracker select Add to Basket
4. Complete the payment process

If you decide that you no longer want to receive the company tracker alert emails, you can switch these off (or back on again) by:

1. Logging in
2. Selecting My Company Tracker
3. Selecting Disable next to any trackers you wish to switch off (to turn a tracker back on again, select Disabled and then select Enable):

So what is a winding up petition?

Good question. It is a court action that is placed against a company (if the court action is successful) by someone who is owed money (a creditor). Petitions will be issued to Companies House if it’s decided that the company will be wound up and eventually dissolved.

Now you know!

How often are Company Reports updated?

A bit of a trick question this week.

Once purchased, our Company Credit Reports are static. Whilst they’re correct at the time of purchase, once in your account they do not change. If a company has made changes after you have purchased the report (you will be notified of such changes with a Company Tracker!), you simply need to purchase another report to see the changes reflected.

How long does it take for changes to be reflected?

It normally takes just a few days for something that has been filed to show up on a company report. Just to reiterate, to see any changes you need to purchase a new report.

Watch your company’s back with a company tracker

Company Credit ReportsNot only are company trackers great for monitoring your competition (we email you when they file something with Companies House), they’re pretty handy when it comes to protecting your own company from fraudulent activity.


Unless your company is signed up for PROOF (this means that Companies House will stop accepting paper forms for your company), all it takes for someone to illegitimately file a document on your company’s behalf is to complete the relevant form and sign it.

Companies House accept documents “on good faith”, therefore if the form has been completed correctly, Companies House are likely to accept it. This means someone could appoint themselves as a director of your company, resign a current appointment or even request a dissolution. Continue reading
