Paradise Papers: Apple in Jersey?
The Paradise Papers are in the news but some of the information being leaked does not seem to be correct. They claim Apple changed domicle to Jersey yet the Irish entity still exists & has not changed it's status to foreign and there is no company entity called Apple incorporated in Jersey. The Panorama programme stated that Apple's registered office in Jersey was at the Appleby offices - there is no Apple company registered there or in Jersey so not true.

What's new?
Florida Company Data
We've added another 7.3 million company records for Florida covering current and historic corporations. Additionally we've addedd a further 8.6 million event records covering Floridian entities. We're another step closer to having all of the USA covered!

As always, the power of Datalog is we cross match these records against companies in other states allowing patterns and relationships to be discovered. HOCKEY HOLDINGS, LLC in Parkland, Florida is a popular company listing already.

Delaware Company Data
We're gradually cracking the secretive state of Delaware to find information about companies in this tax haven. By cross matching we've found information on company officers, income and more. Fedex is headquartered in Delaware - presumably for tax reasons. Although there are vitually no disclosure requirements for Delaware corporations, you'll see what we've found on Fedex, Hertz, Oxford House and more. Facebook UK paid £ 4,327 corporation tax for 2014 with a turnover of £ 104M.

TELLIGEN INC USD $72,973,964

USA State of Colorado
We've added details of security charges (commercial property purchases, transfers and disposals) for Colorado companies based in Denver. Denver government spend with corporations as well as data on company tradenames and trademarks.

UK Winding Up Orders
Our analysis of historical petitions to wind up a company, reveals that HMRC is the biggest threat to a company. HMRC raised 720 out of the 1,560 petitions we looked at (46%). If you want to stay in business - make sure you pay the tax man!

Availability of funding for business is frequently mentioned in the news. Take a look at our detailed analysis of all mortgage charges registered with Companies House. Availability of funding for small businesses doesn't seem to be the issue which is portrayed in the media.

Data Mining Corporate Data
With so much data on Datalog, we can mine our vast databases to extract useful insights into the corporate world. Which types of companies are going into administration? Which are the oldest companies that have gone bankrupt? What are the trends in company formation? What types of companies are being formed? What businesses for sale are available in the UK?
