Edwards & Co have worked in the social enterprise arena in Northern Ireland for some time. We advise on the legal structures available in Northern Ireland such as community interest companies and not-for-profit companies limited by guarantee, unincorporated bodies, co-operatives and others. We also assist organisations to secure some of the benefits and entitlements such as rates reliefs and assistance with access to funds.
We are involved with the umbrella body Social Enterprise Northern Ireland and act for a number of the leading social enterprises operating in this jurisdiction. We are keen supporters and champions of social enterprise which we promote through the weekly tweet up #Belfasthour where small business and social enterprises exchange information and engage with each other in an online forum which has led to business opportunities in the local market and beyond.
