This interactive guide is built to help social entrepreneurs in the UK determine the best legal structure for their social venture.

Through a series of 12 questions, the guide highlights the advantages and disadvantages of different structures, and helps social entrepreneurs pick the best structure for their organisation based on:

• the size of the social venture and its planned growth trajectory
• the planned ownership or membership of the social venture
• set-up costs and ongoing reporting and compliance requirements
• how the social venture is intended to be financed
• how the profits generated by the social venture will be financed
• whether the social venture is a trading business or employs people
• the tax implications of the structure
