Is there a search available in the UK to look up data about publicly listed companies? The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a database of company filings that is searchable. They have the EDGAR Company Search [sec.gov] to look company names, and the EDGAR Full-Text Search [searchwww.sec.gov] that looks up text within the filings.

Companies House WebCheck [wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk] is the service that you are looking for, basic information is free if you want more detailed information (such as a particular companies accounts) then a small fee is payable.
