New Checklist: Charitable Company Formation

March 2024

The new Charitable Company Formation Checklist deals with key points to be considered when setting up a charitable company limited by guarantee (a “CCLBG”).

The Checklist covers various Companies House and Charity Commission requirements and other issues to be taken into account in connection with setting up a CCLBG, such as selection and use of a charity name, financing, premises and assets. It also takes into account the requirements of the Economic Crime & Corporate Transparency Act 2023.

The Checklist is in the form of a table that sets out actions to be taken or considered with a commentary to assist, followed by empty boxes for completion depending on the individual circumstances.

We recommend that you take professional legal advice as necessary before making any decisions as to whether to set up or operate a charity as a CCLBG.

The contents of this Newsletter are for reference purposes only and do not constitute legal advice. Independent legal advice should be sought in relation to any specific legal matter.
