Out Private Client and Corporate Teams have a wealth of experience and can advise whether the best charitable structure for you would be; a trust, a company or the more specialised Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

In order to successfully register with the Charity Commission we can ensure that your charity’s governing document is drafted to accurately reflect your charity’s objectives and meet the legal requirements for charitable status.
With extensive experience our team is well versed in the Charity Commission’s requirements and processes. We’ll advise you on how best to time your application, which depends on the type of charity being established, and how you can change the structure of your charity.
