A Charity is a special type of trust, and in the UK can only be constituted with a special trust instrument.
Further, in order to be recognised as a charity in the eyes of HMRC and with the charity regulator in the UK (the Charities Commission), it is necessary for the charity to meet certain requirements. We can advise on Charity Commission regulations and ensuring that your charity is set up in an efficient manner.
In recent times there have been many entities wishing to set up as a charitable enterprise, and so the rules have become more stingent. We can advise on the requirements needed to be registered as a charity.
Please get in touch with us regarding any requirements in this area, we would be delighted to assist.
