Social Enterprise Accountants
The Social Enterprise movement stands to have a hugely positive impact on the way that business is conducted. Of course, Social Enterprise is nothing new, people have been using trading income to fund social and charitable causes for years. However, what is different is the widespread publicity that Social Enterprise is receiving, and this is encouraging even profit hungry businesses to behave more socially and ethically.
The first thing to point out with Social Enterprises, is that it is not a legal structure like a limited company or a charity. Instead, a wide range of business structures can become social enterprises, and it is much more about how business is done and how the profits are used.
