API Data does not equal Status on CHS for 14317366

Hello, I was searching for SLUMBERLAND BEDS LTD on CHS and got the status as:
Active — Active proposal to strike off

However, API returns these values;
“company_name”: “SLUMBERLAND BEDS LTD”,
“company_number”: “14317366”,
“company_status”: “active”,
“confirmation_statement”: {

Filing history suggests the Strike off actions were started in July 2023.
With this being the latest entry;
18 Jul 2023 First Gazette notice for voluntary strike-off

Is the status reply difference expected or is there issue with the data from API?
Any help/comments are appreciated - thank you.

Hi mh,hunt,I am using the endpoint https://api.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/{companyNumber}
and the JSON Reponse below does return the same information as on the CHS. If you scroll down to the bottom of the response, you will notice that there is a property called “company_status_detail” “active-proposal-to-strike-off”, Your API should be fetching this property too and not just the “company_status” property…

Until the company is struck off, its status remains “active” subject to an “active-proposal-to-strike-off”.

I hope this makes sense.
