CICs Celebrate 10th Anniversary

The Community Interest Company Association has announced a 2015 Survey of CICs. Speaking at the 10th anniversary event for CICs in London today, CIC Association Chairman John Mulkerrin said:

‘It is ten years since the legislation passed into law, and we feel this is a perfect time to build a comprehensive data set of just what is happening on the ground, the impacts being achieved and the challenges faced.’

‘The data will be anonoymised and made available to all in a opensource format. This data will also enable us to highlight common challenges, this year for example we have a section on business rates as many CICs have had issues with the process of obtaining business rates relief from their local authority.’

CICs and all those working with them are encouraged to take part in the survey here:
