What was a company annual return?

It used to be a requirement that all UK registered companies would need to file an annual return on the anniversary of their incorporation. The information contained within this report included the company’s directors, shareholders and their registered office address. The report helped Companies House maintain an up to date record of all incorporate companies but was replaced in July 2016 by the confirmation statement.

Confirmation statements were designed to be less burdensome on businesses as if there were no changes to report it was acceptable to submit a comment of that effect. While the shift from annual reports to confirmation statements was for business owners, they made it more difficult and time-consuming to conduct due diligence on potential suppliers or partners which is why we designed our annual return replacement package.

Our experience with GlobalX is like no other experience we have had with other search providers. The website is very easy to use, you know exactly where to go to place new searches and where to find existing searches. There is always someone on the end of the line who is willing to help, Ben Buckley and Tan Nguyen are extremely helpful not only assisting us when needed but keeping us updated with the progress of our searches.


Birketts has been using GlobalX for a number of years now and the quality and range of their services is excellent, and so is their customer care. Their website is extremely user-friendly producing quick and efficient results, and the CourtCheX service in particular is one we would highly recommend

L G Williams & Pritchard

GlobalX’s service is second to none. Tan and Ben in the property search team always answer calls and reply to emails without delay, making for a great personal service and getting our client’s property purchase off to an excellent start.

Morgan LaRoche

I have been a regular user of GlobalX’s conveyancing searches for several months and I highly recommend them. The ease of use of their website is outstanding, and the customer service received is always superb. In particular, Tan Nguyen and Benedict Buckley have always provided a professional and friendly service to both myself and my colleagues.

Peter Lynn & Partner

GlobalX have been excellent since we started using them. Tan, Kai, Ben and the rest of the team are very efficient and are always at the other end of the phone if there is an issue or if you need something doing urgently. They are also more akin to commercial and residential development sites than other search providers and offer a more bespoke service.


Thanks for the top tip, I’m impressed with the customer service and noticing the error of my ways! In this instance to searches were requested singularly and I would usually search by adding when ordering multiple searches, it’s just how they came in at different times. Thanks again, efficient as ever!

Everyone is delighted with the efficiency and ease of use of the service – previously we had lawyers on the phone to the relevant court wasting huge amounts of mainly unbillable time. I would highly recommend this service.

Elliot Mather

We have only used CourtChex once, but we have found the service efficient and the cost very competitive. We will certainly be trying the service again in the near future and, if it works as well as last time, I will be rolling it out in our other offices.

Knights LLP

I spoke to the help desk yesterday who were absolutely fantastic and did the searches straight away. I'm very impressed by the whole set up you have and the customer service you all provide is excellent
