How to Register as a Social Enterprise in Bangladesh

This Legal Toolkit will assist new social entrepreneurs to navigate the
registration process. Registration can be a lengthy and difficult battle which will
come with a lot of responsibility. Once completed, you will have reporting
obligations and will need to keep detailed financial records, provide an audit of
accounts to the tax office, and set up an office space. You might hesitate about
registration considering the difficulty and time involved but registering your
social enterprise will allow you to safeguard yourself and open the door for
many other benefits:

  • Your legal status will lend credibility to your work, establish trust, and enable you to interact at an official level among donors and other organizations
  • You can open a bank account in the name of the organization
  • You can sign contracts in the name of the organisations
  • You will qualify for financial assistance from government agencies and
    local, national, and international donors
  • You will be entitled to guidance and support from relevant registration
