Setting up a charity or other not-for-profit organisation can seem a complex and daunting proposition. Which of several different legal forms should be chosen and what are the pros and cons of each? What registration requirements and other statutory obligations does each form entail? This succinct and practical guide, written by Julian Smith and Elizabeth Jones of Farrer & Co, London, steers an expert course through the legalities, as well as providing helpful tips on the day to day management of a charity. (It focuses on England and Wales, owing to slight differences in Scotland and Northern Ireland.) Also included in the guide is a comparative analysis on the choice between setting up a UK charity as against undertaking fundraising in the UK as a foreign charity. This is an indispensable source for anyone about to embark on creating a not-for-profit organisation, written by specialists in the field.
