Summary

The Law of Charities has quickly established itself as one of the leading texts in its field. Highly practical in its outlook, it combines a comprehensive and authoritative account of the law with pragmatic advice on procedure. This timely new edition offers essential commentary on the UK Charities Act 2006 and the companion consolidation legislation, and will guide practitioners and academics alike through the important changes to the law--including the establishment of a Charity Tribunal, the creation of new charitable corporations (CIOs), and changes to the administration, registration, and accounting procedures of charities. The Law of Charities 2e is essential reading for everyone involved in the law of trusts or estate management and will guide readers through the first comprehensive changes to the UK's charities regime for 400 years. All of the changes introduced by the Charities Act will be addressed, including: the new statutory list of charitable purposes; the new form of charitable corporation, the Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), that merely requires registration with the Charity Commission; the setting up of a Charity Tribunal to hear appeals from the Charity Commission; the changes to the administration of charities, including registration and accounting requirements; the new unified regime for public charitable collections; changes to the constitution of the Charity Commission.
