Say hello to the Beauhurst API.

The API (Application Programming Interface) enables you to connect our data directly to your own workflows. This means you can embed all the Beauhurst data you need to build your own flexible and scalable solutions.

So, whether you want to embed Beauhurst data into your CRM to enhance your research capabilities, or to build a sophisticated lead scoring system, you can do just that — and more. It delivers up-to-the-minute data on companies, transactions, people, shareholdings, news, and more, into your own systems.

the API can work for your organisation.

First things first: what is an API?

It’s a type of software interface that enables two or more computer programs or components to communicate with each other.

How does our API work?

Our API, once integrated into your systems, lets your team make automated data requests directly from the Beauhurst database. This means you get real-time data directly integrated into your own systems, applications and workflows.

Who is the API for?

The Beauhurst API is for anyone looking to integrate high-quality, market-leading data into their systems, no matter the industry.

What data is included?

Right now, we have APIs for the following datasets:


An overview of a company’s location, size, and sector alongside many other key data points, such as contact details and recent accounts.


A complete and chronological list of a company’s grant and fundraising history. See who invested in a company, how much was raised, the date of the transaction, and the company’s valuation.


The People API has detailed information on the people you’re interested in. See their key positions, directorships and shareholdings as well as their contact information.


Our powerful algorithm scans the web for news related to the companies we track, and our news endpoint allows you to access these articles remotely, automating your news feed. See headlines, links, the source, and dates, even if the article is behind a paywall.


This new feature reveals all shareholders of a company and their shareholdings. It delivers a more detailed view of the ownership of a company, helps find large shareholders, and tracks changes over time.

Our product team is constantly refining the API. For a more detailed look, check out the latest version of the API handbook.

What can you use the API for?

Our API can be used in a variety of ways. Here are just four common ways our clients use the Beauhurst API.

1) Enrich your existing data

Automatically enhance and update your existing data with our API. Instead of sifting through multiple sources to find additional information on companies, people, or transactions, you can simply use the Beauhurst API to refresh them automatically.

And that’s not all. You can also segment the prospects and clients in your CRM using company classifications, and promote data-driven decision making by automating lead scoring, based on the parameters of your ICP (ideal customer profile).

2) Find new company data

The API ensures a constant feed of new records into your CRM, filling any gaps in your company data. Acting as your personal researchers, the Beauhurst API helps your team find new, relevant companies every single day and loads them into your CRM, ready for you to use when needed.

This continuous influx of fresh, high-quality data guarantees you’re always equipped with the latest and most comprehensive information.

3) Build new tools

Plug in Beauhurst to supercharge your machine learning models with high-quality, well-structured data.

This helps improve model accuracy, ensures comprehensive training datasets, and enables real-time updates to your machine learning tool, leading to better predictive performance and more reliable insights.

4) Boost your reporting

Your reporting tools, such as PowerBI, are only as valuable as the data within them. So, whether you’re monitoring portfolio growth or measuring impact, pulling data from Beauhurst via the API can help understand your client base better and segment them with key details.

And with real-time data feeding your reporting tools, manual work is eliminated whilst benefiting from dynamic, real-time reporting.

The benefits of using an API

There’s no one benefit to utilising our API, because it’s a bespoke solution for each client. By eliminating the gaps in your data, there’s no end to the number of uses and benefits it has. For many, the automatic influx of data saves them time, improves their efficiencies, enhances their insights, and enables them to find new opportunities. 

This overview highlights just a handful of capabilities offered by the Beauhurst API. Whether you want to integrate our data into your CRM, enhance your machine learning models, or boost your reporting capabilities, let’s talk.

To learn more about how the Beauhurst API can support your organisation’s specific needs, book a demo today and our team will walk you through the feature.


To access and display Beauhurst data, the API is charged at a fixed fee based on the data you require.

Many of our customers take a hybrid approach by accessing data via our platform, through a subscription while also powering their internal systems with our API.

You can also get access to the Beauhurst API without a platform subscription. If you want to find out more about how this could work, please get in touch.

As of June 2024, the API delivers data on companies, transactions, people, shareholdings, and news. The latest updates can be found via the API Handbook.

The API enables your team to build a versatile and bespoke solution, whereas our integrations are plug-and-play. API setup requires upfront development work, but it is more flexible as a result.

Both have their benefits, and your choice will depend on your business needs. If you have any further questions about this, reach out to our team, and we’ll be happy to advise.
