Almost 10,000 new firms start in England and Wales every month

Almost 10,000 new firms start in England and Wales every week – which ones are near me?!

Typically 10,000 new firms start in England and Wales every week – that is an incredible statistic. To be more exact, these are the numbers registering on Companies House every week. So which are the new firms setting up near me?

We’ve created Recently Formed to make it easy to see which firms are registering on Companies House near a location every week.

When I first showed the service last month to an accountancy firm, we could see that a new firm had started literally 100 yards from their front door the week before! And there while several others within a mile.

Overall the registration statistics at Companies House are quite staggering: in March 43,579 firms registered, in April 37,145, in May 39,695! In fact, the numbers are even bigger than these – because they don’t include sole traders.

If you want know more about the Recently Formed service, we are offering a one month free trial.
