Revision of July statistics:
An error has been identified in the 'historic incorporation, dissolution and register size' table in the excel spreadsheet. The effective register for 2013-14 and 2014-15 figures (2,969,702 for both years) are incorrect. These figures have been revised (2013-14: 2968099 and 2014-14: 3203697).

The June figures in the 'historic incorporation, dissolution and register size' table are also incorrect and July's table should be used for the latest figures.
