What is a CIC (Community Interest Company)?
As with standard limited companies, CICs can be limited by shares, or guarantee. By law, CICs have an asset lock to ensure that any company profits are only used for the purposes that were originally intended, and not for private gain.
To ensure that CICs are run for the benefit of the community, the proceeds of any asset sales must be returned for the benefit of the company, or another CIC (or registered charity).
Each year, the directors must submit an annual community interest report to Companies House alongside its accounts, detailing dividends paid, directors’ remuneration and how the company has been working in the interests of the community over the previous 12 months.
CICs are regulated by The Office of the Regulator of Community Interest Companies, and are subject to standard Company Law.
