The main functions of Companies House are to incorporate and dissolve limited companies, examine and store company information delivered under the Companies Act and related legislation, and make this information available to the public. The United Kingdom has enjoyed a system of company registration since 1844. Today, company registration matters are dealt with in law, by the Companies Act 2006. All limited companies in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland are registered at Companies House, an Executive Agency of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). There are more than 2 million limited companies registered in Great Britain, and more than 300,000 new companies are incorporated each year. Each year Companies House organizes or attends a variety of events to support and advise businesses. This includes attending business-focused exhibitions throughout the UK and organizing Seminars to support new directors and secretaries. They also travel throughout the UK promoting Companies House's services, advising businesses on how to meet their obligations under the Companies Act, and to provide opportunities to meet and discuss issues with their staff.
