Charity Formation

Setting up a charity can be a complicated process. We can advise which charity structure best suits you: Charitable Company limited by guarantee, Trust, Association, Community Interest Company or the new Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)

Registration with the Charity Commission requires an accurate and well thought through application. You can rely on our knowledge and experience to chart you through the process especially making sure you receive thorough advice to be compliant with the all important public benefit test.

If you’re considering a registration application please make use of our checklist which may help you to put in place all the necessary documentation in readiness for the application process.
