Charity Formation

When forming a new organisation there are a number of questions to ask: are the aims of the organisation charitable and what is the most appropriate structure for the organisation? We can help.

Considerations should include:

  • Should this be a company limited by guarantee?
  • Is a trust a more suitable vehicle?
  • Do the objectives require the setting up of a new organisation or can these be achieved through an existing structure?
  • Would a non-charitable not-for-profit structure be more appropriate?

Our lawyers will guide you through these considerations from the initial decision-making process through to drafting the documentation and carrying out the legal procedures and registrations necessary to set up your organisation.
