SIC Codes

What are SIC Codes?

The United Kingdom Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities (SIC) is used to classify business establishments and other standard units by the type of economic activity in which they are engaged.

When you are forming a company, you will be asked to provide a SIC code, so that they can establish what your companies business is.

There are hundreds - by using our search facility during formation you can establish which SIC code is the most relevant. Just type in the word most relevant to your business activity and it will bring up the best match.

Even if your company is dormant (99999) or non-trading (74990) you'll still need to provide the appropriate SIC code.
