Community Interest Company
Registration Service

The Community Interest Company (CIC) legal structure is becoming increasingly popular for people wanting to start a business designed around delivering life-changing improvements for people in our society. CICs bring social and economic improvements to the community and the planet as a whole. If through your own research or our support services, you have determined that a CIC Limited by Guarantee is the right model for you, we can send you a simple questionnaire. From there, we can readily complete the relevant Companies House forms and documentation for you to review, sign and submit.
