How does the process work/what are the steps?
For charity formations we will advise on the process and preparation of documents, focusing on ensuring that the charitable objectives of the organisation and the means of achieving them are accurately set out in the documentation. We can assist with completion of the forms and evidence of income which will need to be supplied to the Charity Commission in order for registration to take place.
We can also provide ongoing assistance with the running of the charity, in particular, the sale and acquisition of property on behalf of a charity.
How long does it take?
Charity formation is usually approved by the Charity Commission within three to four weeks of making the application and assuming that the Charity Commission have no concerns over the information supplied.
