As your charity grows and develops it is likely that changes will need to be made to the rules that govern it and what you do. Most of the time you will be able to run your charity and make changes without involving the charity regulator. However, there are some things you might want to do that will need permission. These are called legal permissions

Description

This service is for charities that need to apply to either the Charity Commission for England and Wales or the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) for written permission (known as legal permission) to do something that charity law would otherwise not allow

There are many reasons why you might need to obtain legal permission. For example, you may need to get permission to make changes to your Governing Document, or you might need permission to pay trustees or sell property to someone connected to your charity. The type of permission and the process you must follow will depend on the structure of your charity and its income

Our approach is to offer you a free initial telephone or video (Skype) consultation about your proposal so that we can advise you on whether permission will be needed from the charity regulator

If you then decide to use our Obtain Legal Permission service, we will use our knowledge of the regulatory framework that applies to charities to explain the steps that will need to be taken and apply to obtain permission on your behalf. We will then deal with all correspondence with the Charity Commission for England and Wales or OSCR until a decision is made whether to give or withhold permission

Included in the price of this service:

Assessment of your proposal and guidance about what you need to do to obtain the relevant permission

Prepare and submit a detailed case on the trustees’ behalf to the Charity Commission or OSCR for written permission

In consultation with you, deal with all ongoing correspondence with the Charity Commission or OSCR until a decision is made whether to give or withhold permission

If required, prepare a draft resolution that can be used to adopt the relevant changes to your Governing Document
