Law changes to help charitable trust boards comply with their rules
Legislation passed on 15 May 2020 gives charitable trust boards relief from certain obligations in their rules that they may not be able to fulfil due to COVID-19. It also enables them to make use of electronic means (including electronic voting and the use of electronic signatures) when their constitution or rules wouldn't normally permit this.
Starting a trust board
To incorporate a charitable trust board you must submit an application, along with the required documents.
A trust board can be established by individuals (trustees) or by an unincorporated society. There are different requirements for each when applying for incorporation.
Keeping details up to date
Once you've registered your charitable trust board, you're required by law to keep certain information about it up to date.
This includes your addresses, your board’s name, and any changes to the trust or the trust board’s rules.
