Can I CIC be formed online? I ant see a facility for this at companies house?
Unfortunately not! You'll have to send by post.
It is an issue, along with not being able to submit yearly accounts and the annual CIC statement. It is something that will be solved, we are trying to get it moving but the problem has been Companies House havent put it into the 'workplan' for making all Company House document do-able online.
It is actually in contravention of an EU directive, it is a pain but I think it shouldnt be too long before its sorted. We'll be mentioning as a priority when we publish the results of the CIC 10 year survey, but please do write to the CIC Regulator directly as they may know more about any developments
