If you’re looking to restructure or reorganise your charity, FJG Charity Law have the expertise to ensure the process runs smoothly and effectively.
We have experience in helping charities become charitable incorporated organisations (CIO), converting from registered unincorporated charities to registered incorporated charities; as well as various other charitable structures. FJG Charity Law can also help set out formal conversion paperwork, advise on compliance and drafting the property-related documents, and even setting up a non-charitable trading subsidiary for your commercial trading. When you look to reorganise, it is important that you consider what is written in your objects clause(s) and to not drift from this. If the changes you are making will affect your charitable purpose we can advise on the most appropriate way to address this, as part of the overall process.
Above all else, and whatever the objective, FJG will be by your side. Click here to contact our team.
