Charities have a privileged status both in terms of public perception and reliefs from taxation but there are conditions to charitable status which govern the appropriate use of their property and achieving best value when realising their assets. Detailed and sympathetic understanding of these issues by practitioners can be of great benefit to charity clients and in many cases can be a prerequisite for providing appropriate and effective legal advice and assistance.

What you will learn

This course will cover the following:

  • The nature of charitable organisations and why charitable status matters
  • Charity structures and how charities hold property
  • The statutory rules regarding commercial mortgages and secured grants
  • Special cases: gifts, mergers, asset transfer
  • Planning and taxation issues relating to charity land acquisitions and holdings
