Charities Act 2006 Summary

Charities Act 2006: A Guide to the New Law by Michael King

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; and, a new framework for the regulation of public charitable collections. Written by experts in this area, "Charities Act 2006" will help you to keep up-to-date with the changes in the law and to understand their implications. The book also provides the consolidated text of the 1992, 1993 and 2006 Acts.
