Setting-up of a community interest company vs. charitable company: often, a business with a philanthropic purpose stands to gain a considerable advantage by using a “CIC’s Business Corporation’s” (CIC) or charitable company structure. Although both vehicles are adopted by organisations that use their profits to benefit the community, many owners find that a CIC offers a more flexible and advantageous way of conducting business.
