  • distributes less than 50% of post-tax profits and reinvests at least 51% surpluses into pursuing its social mission;
  • has a constitutional or contractual lock on its social mission, its dividend and surplus distribution policy and “asset-lock”;
  • carries out, or has ambitions to carry out, trading activities in support of and which are causally linked to its social mission;
  • offers its products and services for general public benefit without restrictions and barriers, such as affordability;
  • is open to undertaking an independent social impact audit;
  • has remuneration and benefits policy which it is willing to make publicly accessible, and which is reasonable and proportionate relative to the market practice for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations;
  • in the case of a sale of the organisation, the directors make best efforts to preserve the social mission under new ownership;
  • can demonstrate that no private benefit will arise from a grant;
