About two weeks ago we went in a fishing expedition in the warm seas of the Caribbean. We looked for company information in a scraped database of Panamanian companies, an offshore haven chosen by many criminals and corrupt politicians to hide their money. We want to take you in another fishing trip but this time in the much colder seas of Great Britain. The following video tutorial indicates how to get, free of charge, information on British based companies and how to creatively use the information from an official database -developed by guys at the Map of Power project- of UK company data. Please let us know if you find this useful and point us out to new resources you come across. The Investigative Dashboard is your playground and a place where tips, tricks and ideas must be shared for the benefit of all of us.
Correction: this post has been corrected as the data on the whorunsit.org was not scraped but bought from the UK registry of companies and then reshaped.
