I was checking some details about a company registered in London and I matched this name Barabara Kahan as a director. Finally I found that the same name seems to be director of hundreds of companies based in London. How this is possible?
Assistant: Thank you. Can you provide any more details to help us find you the right Expert?
Customer: there is one company called Terravision that has many branches and other companies registered under the sane name or director. in one of his companies I found this Barbara Kahan as a director so I was suspicious and I found that this name registered as borned on 1931 is practically the director of a huge number of companies

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

This is a common name of an individual.

What is the FULL name of the company?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I was collecting all the information about an Italian enterpreneur called Fabio Petroni that opened several companies in UK under the name of Terravision (majority). He's under judgment in Italy for fraudolent bankruptcy and I was checking if his English companies at the moment they have some economical problems (statement with overdue). one company is called Britaly and the resigned Director was this Barbara Kahan that I found out is in title with hundreds English companies and it doesn't seems real. She borned on 1931! so I assume is a way to start a company without being involved in controlls.

No need gir call

You can get free information at:

However you can search by name and/or company.

However if it is a common name (and Khan is) it may bring up lots of results - but you don't necessarily know whether it is the same person.

Anyone can start a company in the UK unless they have been made bankrupt or disqualified.

If Fabio Petroni is corrupt you can inform companies house, who can disqualify him from being a Director or running a business.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

this means that if he has been condamned in Italy and there is the advise to the companies hous government they dissolve him like a director in all his companies registered? This wouldn't mean he has to stop to run his English companies?

Correct. He can not be a Director or person in significant control

Does that clarify?

it does. Everyone can have this deal or the procedure is only for solicitors or lawyers


Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Companies House
