Request for information on Electronic Search Services charge statistics

Scott Edmunds made this Freedom of Information request to Companies Registry

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Companies Registry,

Under the code on access to information I would like to request data on your yearly revenue from access to the companies registry. Including money from subscription fees and Electronic Search Services charges for access to the register. Any breakdowns on the numbers of users and money coming in from the different services you are offering would be useful if you have it too. Whatever the most recent full years of data would be useful, going back a couple of years.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds
