We are Businesslegal a legal services consultancy established since 1994. We incorporate and generally set up organisations and have considerable expertise in charity registration of organisations in England and Wales with the Charity Commission and with the OSCR (Office of Scottish Charity Regulator) in Scotland.
We have specifically set up this website to deal with individuals or organisations who wish to register a charity organisation with the Charity Commission or OSCR. You may be resident in the UK or overseas. You may need our assistance to set up an appropriate charity organisation (eg a trust, charitable incorporated organisation, company limited by guarantee or a constitution) and then register it as a UK charity,or, you may already have one of these organisations set up but need expert advice on UK charity registration.
We can also assist charities who wish to register with HMRC so that they can claim gift aid relief on donations from individuals.This is an entirely independent process to registration with the Charity Commission.
What is a Charity? Do you qualify for registration?
Charities must have, and carry out, wholly charitable purposes and activities. Not all purposes, even those that may be beneficial or philanthropic, are necessarily charitable.
