The UK SIC code list was last updated in 2007 to reflect the changing nature of the UK economy and the rapid rise of the internet and connected devices. For the first time, there were now over 1,000 different SIC codes containing different types of business establishments.

SIC codes in the UK are primarily used by government agencies like Companies House and the Office of National Statistics to monitor in which areas of the economy the numbers of business establishments are growing and which are in decline.

The use of SIC codes to record the activities of business establishments however has fallen out of favour with mailing list owners and brokers. In comparison to the modern descriptive classifications, SIC codes seem somewhat archaic in their language and some of the splits between different activities do not seem as natural.

More Than Words note – if you want to see what how owner and brokers of mailing lists are now more likely to list the activities of the business establishments on their database, please click for our industry sectors lists or for alphabetical B2B data lists.

How do B2B marketers use SIC codes?

B2B marketers use SIC codes in the same way they use the more modern business classifications – to select the types of companies they wish to market to based upon a belief that these companies have the greatest need for their products and services.

When purchasing marketing databases from list owner and brokers for their direct marketing campaigns, B2B marketers keep campaigns costs to a low by eliminating as much “redundancy” as possible. In direct marketing terms, “redundancy” means businesses or people you contact who would never have any interest in what you sell.

By eliminating “redundancy”, the cost of purchasing data to run campaigns is saved and money is also saved in the execution of those campaigns (lower email transmission costs, lower postal costs, fewer telemarketing calls made and so on).

How can the data you hold on business establishments contained on your SIC code database be used?

Once they’ve chosen the targets they wish to communicate with, clients use their UK business database in one or more of three ways as a –

What if someone wants to use the data but they don’t have the staff or infrastructure to carry out campaigns?

Many B2B marketing specialists offer managed B2B email marketing campaigns and managed B2B telemarketing campaigns for clients in these circumstances.

UK SIC codes FAQ

SIC standards for “Standard Industry Classification” and SIC codes are the five-digit numerical codes used by limited companies to tell Companies House what their business activities are.

They are used by government agencies like the Office for National Statistics and Companies House to identify and categorise what businesses do as well as brokers and owners of mailing lists when selling bespoke contact databases to their clients for marketing purposes.

There are 1,045 UK SIC codes currently in existence.

SIC codes are split into 21 SIC groups (sometimes called SIC industry groups or SIC marking groups).

The 21 current UK SIC groups and the number of SIC codes within each SIC group are as follows:

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) replaced the SIC system in 1997 and the system is jointly used by U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The NAICS system is not used in the UK and no government agency or mailing list is compliled using these classifications.

Companies may choose a maximum of up to 4 SIC codes when registering at Companies House or submitting their  (the replacement for the old Annual return).

In the UK, to find a company’s SIC number or numbers, you need to log into the Companies House website.

When you’re there, click on “find company information“. Then click “Start Now” and you’ll be invited to search the register.

As an example, enter “More Than Words (Marketing) Limited”. Click on our name (it appears top of the search) and you’ll be taken through to our listing. Scroll down and look for the heading “Nature of business (SIC)”.

Under that heading, you’ll see our one SIC – 73110 Advertising agencies.

You can do the same for any private or public limited company in the UK as well as many limited liability partnerships.

4 digit SIC codes belong to an older version of the SIC code classifications. Companies House stopped using them in October 2011 requiring companies to complete their confirmation statement using 5-digit codes instead.

There are no 4 digit SIC codes remaining in use from this point in the UK.

The first two digits of a UK SIC number indicate to which SIC group a company belongs – for example:

SIC codes come from the United States having been introduced there in 1937 to help government agencies understand the types of companies which make up their private sector and allow them to monitor over times which sectors are growing or shrinking in size.
