Business with a conscience
As well as charities and not for profit organisations, there are a growing number of businesses that want to contribute to a wider goal other than just the bottom line. Businesses that operate to provide a benefit to a particular community are actually more likely to succeed. Business owners also feel empowered by a wider purpose.
For some businesses, a Community Interest Company is the right vehicle. This was a new type of structure established in 2005 to enable a balance to be struck between generating profits and benefitting a particular community or purpose.
Having a wider purpose doesn’t free these businesses from the same red tape as everyone else though – in fact it can bring more! Therefore choosing the right advisors is key. We have a team with a long history and experience of dealing with both the charitable and business sectors. This gives us a unique blend that makes us the go-to accountants for social enterprises.
