Want to know more about a company but don’t know where to look?

Corporate Watch's new Do-It-Yourself Handbook shows you how to look into a company you’ve got an issue with, and how to find and understand key pieces of information about it, including:

- Who owns and runs it, and how much they are making;

- The impact of its operations;

- How much money it has, how much profit it is making and how much debt it is in;

- Details of public service and government contracts it has;

- Links with politicians;

- Its legal and regulatory duties.

The handbook also includes guides to:

- Reading company accounts;

- Understanding company law, ownership and financing;

- Making freedom of information requests;

- Searching the web;

- Talking to the company, workers and people affected by it;

and includes extensive company, government, business information and critical sources.

The focus is on UK companies but most of the information is relevant to companies wherever they are based.
