ASEAN Social Enterprise Structuring Guide
by British Council, Tilleke & Gibbins, United Nations ESCAP and Thomson Reuters Foundation

British Council, Tilleke & Gibbins, United Nations ESCAP and Thomson Reuters Foundation teamed up to release the ASEAN Social Enterprise Structuring Guide in February 2018.  The Thomson Reuters Foundation has always championed the emerging impact economy. A key priority for TrustLaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono service, is to support innovative organizations who are addressing environmental, humanitarian and social problems across the globe. Thomson Reuters Foundation is continuously inspired at the passion, innovation and resilience of these businesses. Thomson Reuters Foundation's work in Southeast Asia continues to prove that social entrepreneurs are at the forefront of driving change and creating social impact.

The legal structure a social entrepreneur chooses for their venture can have a significant bearing on their ability to achieve social change. This guide identifies the advantages and disadvantages of each structure and sets out the relevant registration procedures, regulatory and governance considerations, tax treatment as well as finance and fundraising options – an understanding of all of this is so crucial to ensuring the sustainability, good governance and success of a social venture.  Read the full report.
