A note on language
The results of the quiz are relevant to the Scottish context. Social enterprises in Scotland are defined by the ‘asset-lock’ i.e. a legal promise stating that the company's assets will only be used for its social objectives, and setting limits to the money it can pay to shareholders.
The results of the quiz are not definitive. The best choice of legal structure will depend on your idea, ambitions, funding requirements, and personal circumstances. You should speak to a Business Advisor for advice, or a qualified Legal Expert for a more detailed discussion of the responsibilities, risks and benefits of different business structures.
