Director reports

The ICAEW Library & Information Service can provide reports on the current and previous directorships held by an individual in UK & Irish companies. These reports can help you build up a picture of an individual's business history and help you assess their suitability as business partners.

The reports we produce are compiled using the FAME company information database from BvD using the details that you provide and the results are supplied by email as Excel spreadsheets.

We provide reports free of charge to ICAEW members and ACA students. This service is not available to members of the public.

If you would like to run searches on all the directors of a company, rather than one individual director, you may wish to order a Connections report instead.

What information does a report contain?

The reports contain the following information for each directorship identified through our search:
