In the UK all companies have to be registered at Companies House and whilst consulting the details of each company requires a payment, certain information such as the company name, registered address, activities, date of incorporation and accounting dates are available on line for free at this website. http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/info/
The site "companieshouse" does open and close at a specified time.
Also you can find a list of bank regulator's I am putting together on my site.
Also you can find a list of abuse mails I am putting together on my site as well.
Site is still under construction so bare with me.
