What is a Community Interest Company?
A Community Interest Company is a type of limited company which exists to benefit its community, not private shareholders. In this case the communities are Little Crosby, Ince Blundell, Thornton, Blundellsands, Waterloo, Seaforth and Brighton-le-sands.
The Asset-Lock is a fundamental feature of Community Interest Companies. This exists to ensure that the assets of the company are used for the benefit of the community.
This means that any assets held must either be kept within the CIC for the benefits of its members or, if transferred out of the company, must be sold for full market value with the proceeds again being used in the interest of the community.
