There are several different legal structures which you could choose from, depending upon the purpose of your organisation and the size and nature of your operation.
The following links give further information as well as tools to help you decide:
- If you need help choosing which organisational structure is right for you, read the Charity Commission’s how to choose a structure blog.
- If you are considering setting up a social enterprise, read the guide to Structures for Social Enterprises from legal firm DLA Piper.
- For community owned businesses or co-operatives, have a look at the Plunkett Foundation’s A Brief Guide to Legal Structures.
