   On the different limited company forms available to CICs, see [Part 3] of the Regulator’s information
and guidance notes.
    Section 33 of the Companies (Audit Investigations and Community Enterprise) Act 2004 provides
that the name of any community interest company which is not a public company must end with either
the words “community interest company” or the letters “c.i.c.” (or, if the articles state that the
company’s registered office is to be situated in Wales, with the words “cwmni buddiant cymunedol” or
the initials “c.b.c.”).
    For companies incorporated after 1 October 2009 the memorandum of association will consist only
of the names of the subscribers of the company. If you are an existing company incorporated prior to 1
October 2009 and wishing to become a community interest company, you will need to incorporate the
relevant provisions of your current memorandum into the articles of the community interest company.
    For illustration, space for one subscriber has been supplied here. There is no upper limit to the
number of subscribers and further entries may be added as appropriate.
