Legal Structures for Start Ups
11am - 12.30pm, 1.30pm - 3.30pm
The programme is divided into two workshops:
The first session will consider incorporation and what that means; provide an overview of the most adopted legal structures for social enterprises in Scotland; and will clarify the governance and legal responsibilities required from your Board of Directors.
The second session will consider the asset lock and what it means; explain the need for Memorandum and Articles of Association, highlighting their importance to a social enterprise; and will go over some frequently asked questions.
