The National Archives has a very helpful resource on researching their business collections available on their website here.
One of the best things about it is that it explains what the National Register of Archives (NRA) is and how to use it. This online register is one of the first places I start with when looking for business archive collections.
It is possible to search The National Archives (NRA) for the records of businesses using the corporate name index. Information about prominent industrialists can be found on the personal name index, while details of the records of families involved in business can be located in the family name index.
