Company information

Business and IP Centre Leeds

As well as support for those looking to start, grow or run a business, the Business and IP Centre in Leeds also provides access to a number of eResources. This includes Complete Business Reference Advisor (COBRA) who specialise in business profiles, factsheets and FAME which provides comprehensive information on companies in the UK. Please note, these eResources are only accessible on-site in the Business and IP Centre.

Financial data

The company's own corporate website is a good starting point for finding company information and data. The corporate website, developed for people who are interested in the business, usually contain annual reports and other financial information.

Over the last year, the Library organised a series of training sessions with all the databases you can see below; BankFocus, CSMAR, Refinitiv Workspace, WRDS (inc. Compustat, CRSP and ExecuComp). If you were unable to attend the any of the sessions or would like to watch them again, recordings of all training are available in the 'Replay Content' area of the Database Training Library 23/24 VLE site.
