The very latest Halifax postcode address list for direct marketing
and other applications including direct mail and data cleaning. This is the only official address database sourced
directly from Royal Mail and provides you with every postcode and
postal address in the Halifax postal area!
The Postcode Address List or PAF file as it is otherwise known, is without any doubt the definitive most up-to-date and complete address database in the UK. There are two product options: the UK file which has every address and postcode in the UK (28 million addresses both business and residential) OR just the addresses in
the Halifax postcode area, which is the cheaper more address specific and a smaller file.

The Halifax Postcode Address List covers every known address in
the Halifax Postcode Area (HX). A sample of the PAF can be found
by following the link at the top of this page, this will also provide you with the data fields that are provided for each record.
The PAF file is supplied as a Comma
Separated Variable (CSV) delimited text file using double quotes by default. This field format will open very easily using
almost any software application including but not limited to Excel, Word, Notepad, Access, SQL etc. Due to the size of the file,
older versions of Excel may not be an option as Excel limits any file size to around 65,000 rows / records.
The Postcode Address File (PAF) is by default emailed at the time of order using a secure download link delivery method. If you require the PAF supplied in another format then we will be more than happy to accommodate you where humanly reasonable to do so at no extra cost.
PAF is licensed annually for each user
that has access to it. Options for system licences and
internet licences are also available.
The Halifax Postcode Address List is the most up-to-date and complete address database available for
Halifax addresses containing a mixture of business and residential sites. For your licence fee you will receive the very latest file which will be valid for 12 months use and this includes quarterly updates to ensure it stays up to date.
