Government to introduce changes to ensure small CICs continue to report on director remuneration

The government has announced proposed incidental changes in efforts to implement corporate governance reforms. Given the restrictions on disclosures required of small companies and the removal of obligations to report on directors’ remuneration, the government is looking to ensure small community interest companies (CICs) continue to report on director remuneration, which includes pay and other benefits.

The regulator of CICs holds an expectation that CICs will continue to provide remuneration information on their annual report (CIC34), so that the community interest test is satisfied. In the event that a CIC does not satisfy the community interest test, the regulator can take enforcement action.
