From establishing a charity in one of its various forms, to its reorganisation and winding up together with providing ongoing advice, Burnett & Reid LLP has been assisting charities across the North East with their good work since 1754.
You should consider when the charity is to be established; during your life or with funds being added to the charity upon your death and who will benefit. For example, is it family members or a class of people that you wish to benefit from the charity. The structure of the charity can vary widely, allowing for the participation of the local community or a more private structure where Trustees have flexibility about the money paid out.
Our experienced team can provide you with advice, guidance and assist you with preparing all the relevant documentation for a charity and with the ongoing reporting requirements and administration.
