Hopewiser provides two alternate datasets derived from the Companies House data. The first is a Master Address File (MAF) with extra data, where the address information is sourced from Companies House.
The second can be used alongside Hopewiser’s products, and address information is validated against the Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF). Both datasets undergo a bespoke enhancement process to ensure the highest level of quality control.
Both offerings include access to the same non-address data items, including:
Previous company names
With Hopewiser’s solution you’ll also receive:
Monthly updates of the latest Companies House data.
Updated information for existing companies whereby their details have changed.
Inclusion of new companies registered during the previous month.
