UK financial data
Data on UK companies is provided by FAME, a company and financial database. It provides detailed company information, including addresses and contacts, on UK and Irish public and private companies.
FAME is updated daily and can be used to obtain company reports, to create mailing lists for a marketing strategy or to generate comparative lists of companies that you can use to benchmark an organisation.
We provide reports free of charge to ICAEW members and ACA students. This service is not available to members of the public.
What information is in a FAME company report?
Information is derived from records filed at Companies House and other suppliers and the data available will depend on whether a company files full or abbreviated accounts.
The following information may, depending on the data available, be contained in each report:
- Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code
- profit and loss data
- assets and liabilities
- current and historical credit scores and ratings
- current and previous directors
- contact names and positions
- holding companies and subsidiaries
- audit details.
The FAME database also includes details of active and inactive charities taken from the Charity Commission register of charities and the Scottish Charity Register. The reports for charities provide addresses, basic financial data and information on trustees.
