More help for CIC's.
1 HSBC refuse to give us a business credit card because they insist we are a not-for-profit and MUST have a constitution whereas we are a CIC limited by guarantee with Articles of Association.
2 HMRC state CIC's show profits and must pay Corporation Tax but as a CIC has a "surplus" that is ploughed back into our business not a "profit" for directors.
3 99% of grant making trusts do not recognise CIC as having "charitable" objects whereas the Nat Lottery do?
CIC regulator needs to do much more to promote and educate HMRC, banks, accountants and the charity sector about CIC's.
