Charities and the law

If you simply want to manage your philanthropy, a charitable trust or foundation will give you more flexibility, control and power over which charity will benefit and when.

If you are interested in forming a new charity, you will need to ensure your organisation meets the following criteria:

  • there must be a governing document setting out how the charity will be run;
  • the charity must anticipate a gross annual income of £5,000;
  • the charity must only be involved with ‘charitable work’ that will provide public benefit;
  • the charity must have clear aims and objectives.

Fulfilling the above parameters will allow you to register with the Charity Commission, ensuring you benefit from the significant income tax, capital gains tax, corporation tax and inheritance tax reliefs the government allows for charitable organisations.
