Equifax UK has launched a service to provide more information on companies and directors.  Equifax Commercial Silver will allow members to share information on suppliers and individuals that they may not be able to get from Companies House.

Neil Munroe, external affairs director for Equifax UK, said: “Two things that businesses need are enhanced information about people they are trading with and people that are supplying them with goods and services. What we have seen is with increasing numbers of small businesses and the requirements of Companies House, there is a need to develop information about their trading and performance.  We have developed a community to share information about trading.”

Members can sign up to the service, based on anticipated usage, and obtain information that they may not usually be able to achieve. This might be information about directors that people have used, or simple trading information about companies that is not registered with Companies House.
