Principal Business Activity

Standard industrial classification of economic activities (SIC) 2007

What is your principal business activity?

From 30th June 2016, when you form a new company you are required to tell Companies House what business activity the new company will undertake.  You do this by providing one of the Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities (SIC) codes used by Companies House (you can submit up to 4 codes if you wish).  We have devised a helpful SIC Code Lookup to help you find the right code for your company formation.  To find your SIC code, simply type in your business activity.


SIC Code Finder


Now you have the SIC code(s) that describe your business activity, you can start your company formation.
