Company Data Request 3.2 - does it actually return past directors/secretaries i.e. via "ResignationDate"

Hi there,

In the “Company Data Request" schema i.e. “CompanyData-v3-2.xsd” it appears that in the list of “Officers” we could get the “ResignationDate” element returned.

So far i’ve not seen the “resignation” date populated in any company data returned.

Question: Is it actually possible to get “Past Officers” for a “Company Data Request" or does it always just give the “current” officers?

Many thanks,

Hi Alex,

The purpose of the data request is to give companies the opportunity to review information held at Companies House prior to filing a Confirmation Statement. As such, only “current” data is returned.

I hope this clarifies.


Many thanks for the reply Simon,

Yes this does clarify the situation.

Much obliged,


Do you know if there is there any way to get a full list of directors and the resignation dates?
