The Royal Mail produce a Business Address list containing 1.40 million sites across the UK.
These sites hold one or more business entities including but not limited to units, shared
office suites and single sites, that's mixed in with their Residential file of 28 million.
We've extracted the business sites from the UK address file PAF. The PAF file contains every
address in the UK on a single file (residential and business).
As the number of records is significantly reduced we offer the business file at a reduced
annual cost (compared to the mixed residential & business file).
