The tilda just means "from site root" so will only give you a relative path even when resolved. If you want the full path then you will need to strip the domain information from the Request object.
string path = "~/Companies/test.aspx";
string url = string.Format("{0}://{1}{2}",
                         Request.Url.Scheme,
                         Request.Url.Authority,
                         ResolveUrl(path));
