The Company Accounts Analysis dataset is an analysis of companies in Great Britain and their accounts, prepared by the Business Statistics Office for analysis on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry. The information includes descriptive data on the company itself, and figures of detailed financial information taken from the balance sheet, income and appropriation account, and sources and uses of funds of the company.
The sample includes all industrial and commercial companies in Great Britain. The data relates to limited companies only and is based on the consolidated annual accounts of company groups and the accounts of independent companies registered in Great Britain. Great Britain subsidiaries of parent companies registered in Northern Ireland or overseas were also included.
The analysis excluded banking, insurance and other financial companies, charities, and companies registered abroad which maintained GB trading addresses.
