A social enterprise, whatever form it takes, is first and foremost a trading business. Its difference is that it trades primarily for social benefit. But like any other business it needs to generate profits (or surplus) to thrive.
Whether you are starting out with an idea, looking to grow and develop your business or want to know about more about social ownership and co-operative business models we can help you.
Social Accounting is about measuring what matters so that you can evidence and account for the social impact you make.
All businesses must produce annual financial accounts to demonstrate to its stakeholders how well it is performing, but not all businesses are created with the primary purpose of making profit. Social accounting applies the same rigour to measuring and managing your social and environmental bottom line.
