A company number is a unique number assigned to a company on registration. The company number also contains the year the company was registered.
It will be displayed on your company’s certificate of incorporation, CR 6 form (Former CR 14 form) – list of address, CR 5 (Former CR 6 form) – list of directors, and any other document lodged at the registrar of companies.
