Charity Law

Working with charities

Charity Law is a notoriously complex area of law.  However, at Farani Taylor Solicitors, we are pragmatic and resolve issues cost-effectively. We work with some large charities helping them with legal solutions to their problems.

Our Charity Lawyers can help charities and those who support them overcome obstacles, grow and achieve objectives. Whether it be relieving poverty, saving lives, developing community or protecting the environment. 

At Farani Taylor Solicitors, we help with all aspects of Charity Law including but not limited to setting up/creating new charities, registering them with the Charity Commission, reviewing governance documents, restructuring charities and charity litigation, advising on fundraising and trading activities and regulatory investigation.

Governance

Governance structures must conform to both the regulatory requirements and the modern audience. We work closely with our clients to ensure that the structure suits and limits any liability for trustees

Charities may decide to change their organisational structure to meet modern needs. Our team can provide advice and a plan of action.

Our Charity Lawyers understand regulation and provide charities with the policies to meet the regulatory and legislative requirements.

When starting a new charity or social enterprise, you need advice on the legal structure. This could be Charitable Incorporated Organisation, Charitable Trust or Company Limited by Guarantee. We can set out advantages of the structures and even advise when other forms of incorporation should be reviewed.

Advice on fundraising

We provide sound legal advice to our clients on the sources of income. Whether it be to setup subsidiaries of the charity or develop contracts with commercial partners.

If you need tax or financial services advice we work with firms who can help. So you take advantage of all the tax benefits of charitable status.

If you are looking at fundraising then we ensure that you do so aligned with relevant regulation. This includes registering the charity with the Fundraising Regulator.
