Who would have thought that each month over 100 new ‘community interest companies (C.I.C.) are registered in the UK?
How CICs are set up and operate is EXACTLY what Muhammad Yunus calls ‘social business’!
CIC legislation was introduced in 2006.
CICs are regulated by an office that is part of Companies House – under the Department for Business, Innovation and Skill – BIS.
The CIC Association was launched in September 2009. By August 2011, 1391 people had registered.
The 3,000th CIC was registered in August 2009.
Please note CIC Invest! for funding!
