As far as I can see, the current search functionalities do not allow you to search by registered office address. Searching using a postcode with "/search" for example fails to return the full list of companies (in comparison to the website).
Is there a way I can search for companies by registered office address, or is there any plan to implement this at some point? This kind of functionality would be useful as it is a requirement to list all the companies that have registered offices in a building - using the CH API would save a lot of manual maintenance when there are a lot of companies registered to one building.
