The new Charities Act 2006 signals a radical overhaul of the legislation affecting charities. Its far-reaching changes affect virtually all aspects of charities law, including:

  • Expansion of the four heads of charitable purpose to thirteen categories
  • An emphasis on public benefit, so that charities will have to demonstrate what they do that benefits the community
  • Widened regulatory powers for the Charity Commission and a new Charity Tribunal which will have the power to revisit the Commission’s decision-making
  • New rules on restructuring and charity mergers, including the protection of legacies on mergers
  • The option for charities to adopt a new corporate structure as ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’
  • New rules regarding the remuneration of trustees and the power to spend capital
  • A new framework for the regulation of public charitable collections.
The book also provides the consolidated text of the 1992, 1993 and 2006 Acts.
