FullCircl’s Business Information Graph ingests billions of data points every day from validated and verified sources for the most comprehensive and up to date Customer Lifecycle Intelligence available.

Companies House

Companies House incorporates and dissolves registered companies and partnerships, registers the information companies are legally required to supply, and makes that information available to the public. FullCircl obtains bulk, streamed and scraped data from Companies House via multiple channels.

HMRC Overseas Trade Statistics

UK HMRC publishes a monthly extract of all companies which have exported or imported goods into or out of the EU. This contains some company details such as name and address, as well as the commodity code of the good which has been imported/exported. FullCircl consumes this data as soon as it is published and matches it to registered companies in order to enable discovery of companies with international exposure.

Update frequency: monthly (and released monthly by HMRC)

Financial Conduct Authority (FCA/PRA)

The FCA is the UK’s financial services regulator. As part of its activities, the FCA maintains the official register of regulated firms and individuals. FullCircl consumes this data and matches it to registered companies for easy discovery and due diligence on regulated organisations.

Update frequency: monthly

Peps & Sanctions

C6 is a provider of Know Your Customer (KYC) and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) services who maintain a database of Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), sanctioned entities, adverse media reports, law enforcement and other risk-related data. FullCircl consumes C6’s global fraud database and matches it on the fly to registered companies in order to enable users to conduct their AML compliance checks as part of their regulatory obligations.

Credit Data Providers

FullCircl receives bulk datasets related to UK and Irish companies, in particular basic company information, directors, shareholders, filed accounts and group structures, these being sourced from registers across the world. Naturally we also get credit information from these providers. Additionally, our credit providers also provide FullCircl with basic company information, directors and group structure data for another 7 countries (Sweden, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Norway, Germany and Netherlands).

Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs)

Legal Entity Identifiers are a non-proprietary global standard for identifying distinct legal entities engaging in financial transactions.

These can be used to search for companies on FullCircl.

Further ad hoc or static base data we have use of to power our features:

Ordnance Survey (OS)

Ordnance Survey (OS) is the national mapping agency for Great Britain and is one of the world’s largest producers of maps. FullCircl sources a variety of geographical datasets directly from OS including but not limited to postcode regions, neighbourhoods, towns, cities and counties. This data is used to power location-based company search.

Crawled Web Content

In addition to a sophisticated in-house pipeline which matches websites to registered companies, FullCircl also extracts a wide range of unstructured data from the matched websites. That data is patched to feed into the product. This includes contact information, company logos, trading/alias names, social media links and FullCircl proprietary industry keywords, which power the industry classification search results.


FullCircl collects and provides links to matched Twitter profiles for registered companies, as well as incorporating Twitter feeds for those companies on their profile pages.


FullCircl collects and provides links to matched LinkedIn profiles for both registered company and director entities.


FullCircl consumes the entire data set of Wikipedia articles and matches them to registered companies. This data is also used in the generation of FullCircl’s industry keywords which power the industry classification search results.

The Charity Commission

The Charity Commission is the official charity registrar and regulator for England and Wales. It maintains the register of charities which collects and makes available official charity filings including details of charity financials, trustees, activities, objectives, jurisdictions of operation, contact details and more.


WHOIS is a query and response protocol that is widely used for querying databases that store the registered users or assignees of an Internet resource, such as a domain name or an IP address block. FullCircl uses this information in our proprietary URL matching pipeline, to generate candidate website matches – to registered companies – before verifying or rejecting these matches based on additional data points.
