Advice on Charity Law Issues
We regularly advise on the following:
Charity Formation and Registration
Setting up a charity can be a complicated process. We can advise which charity structure best suits you: company limited by guarantee, trust, association, CIC or even CIO! Registration with the Charity Commission now requires an accurate and detailed application. You can rely on our knowledge and experience to chart you through the process especially satisfying the all important public benefit test.
We are also able to help established charities modernise or amend their constitutions, develop new ventures and establish subsidiary structures, particularly trading companies.
Our fees for the formation of a charitable company limited by guarantee start at £195 plus VAT plus disbursements.
Our fees for registration with the Charity Commission start at £995 plus VAT.
We can guide and advise trustees on their responsibilities and liabilities, on good governance practice, policies and structures and help trustees find a solution to their problems if their arrangements or relationships break down.
We can handle the process of appointment and removal of trustees, advise on the tricky issue of employed trustees, and the pros and cons of trustee or member driven structures
