This handy guide explains how to set up and register a charity and the regulatory framework within which charities operate. It also takes practitioners through the appointment, removal and disqualification of charity trustees and includes a full examination of trustees' powers and duties and the law as it affects charity fundraising. The author looks in turn at public charitable collections, payroll deduction, gaming and lotteries, entertainments, and charity promotions. He also provides expert guidance on the taxation and other financial privileges afforded to charities, and explains how income and corporation tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, VAT and stamp duty apply to charities.
