This ia reply I got from my council with regareds to relief: CIC is not a charity and thus cannot benefit from mandatory relief. CICs can be established or conducted for profit, although the profit must be applied for the public good. However, s.47(2)(b) disallows profit-making organisations from discretionary relief
I am therefore unable to apply any mandatory or discretionary relief.
