Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) Formation Checklist


This checklist covers the key points that need to be considered when setting up a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (a “CIO”).

The checklist is based on various requirements of the Charity Commission and Charity Law, but also covers preliminary issues to be considered before deciding to set up a CIO, selection of permissible charity names, use of names, the taking on of financing, the premises the charity will operate from, and charity assets.

This checklist is in the form of a table which sets out the action that needs to be taken or considered, with commentary to assist, followed by empty boxes for completion as to status and responsibility etc. depending on the individual circumstances.

This template is a useful guide when setting up a CIO to ensure that all the main points have been considered. This checklist is not exhaustive but does include all the main headline points. How you use it will depend on the size and nature of your proposed charitable organisation.
