Getting the right legal form for a social enterprise is key to determining how the business can run going forward. Each different legal form has specific aspects, and pros and cons, so it’s important to understand them fully to ensure that you pick the one that best suits your aims, activities, money, membership, impact and governance requirements.

There’s no denying that legal form is a complex area and requires time to investigate and think about as part of the process of creating a social enterprise. Team members at Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway can work with you to explore the various legal forms in relation to your aims.
