The Charities Act 2006 will significantly reform the field of charity law and will impact heavily on law and practice in the not-for-profit sector. Written by recognised experts in the Legal 500 directory for their work in the field of charities, this book will explain the new law succinctly and will address the practical implications of all the fundamental reforms including:-

  • the introduction of a new definition of charitable purposes,
  • changes to the public benefit test,
  • charity formation and the Charity Incorporated Organisation,
  • payment and liability of charity trustees,
  • the regulation of excepted and exempt charities, charity registration,
  • the Charity Commission's functions and powers,
  • mergers,
  • the Charity Appeal Tribunal and the new fundraising regime.
The title adopts a very practical approach to the changes and, as the authors have been closely involved in the legislative process, it also provides a real insight into the thinking behind certain provisions. The title will also include a copy of the Charities Act 2005 as part of the materials.

Introduction; Charity Objects and the Public Benefit Test; Charity Formation and the Charity Incorporated Organisation; Charity registration; Trading; The Charity Commission as Regulator; The Charity Commission as Enabler; Alterations of Trusts and Mergers; The Charity Appeal Tribunal; The New Fundraising Regime; Conclusion; Appendices.
