Charities and Not for Profit

Charities and voluntary organisations face complex and ever changing legislation, whilst balancing the demands of fund raising with operating within the limits of the regulatory framework, often with limited resources.

As well as charity law, our lawyers are able to share their expertise in assisting clients across the full range of their operations.

services we provide

We advise charities and not for profit organisations on the following issues:

  • setting up a charity, whether by trust, company limited by guarantee, CIC or otherwise
  • applications to the Charity Commission
  • public benefit
  • changes to a charity’s constitution and obtaining any necessary permissions
  • restructuring and amalgamations of charities and the winding up or dissolutions of charities
  • acquisition/disposal of all interests in land
  • trustee advice and training days
  • management and administration of charities and not for profit organisations
  • regulatory advice when dealing with regulatory bodies such as the Charity Commission, the Communities and Local Government Department, the Homes for Communities Agency, HMRC and Companies House
  • trading, commercial contracts and setting up a subsidiary
  • employment and volunteer issues

our experience

We act for a wide range of charities and other not for profit institutions including trusts, schools, charity companies, registered social landlords, clubs and other unincorporated associations.

Many of our partners are trustees, governors and directors of such organisations, and bring with them a wealth of legal and practical expertise in this sector through years of advising and running such bodies.

Mundays advises all types of businesses from start-ups to public companies, charities in the form of charitable trusts and companies limited by guarantee together with non-charitable companies limited by guarantee such as social enterprises.
