The Law of Charities

Peter Luxton
Consultant Editor: Judith Hill

  • A comprehensive and authoritative new practitioner/reference work on the law of charities, set to become required reading for all who work in this field.
  • Distinctively modern approach, with focus on the influence of commercial and company law upon charities and their activities (e.g. via trading subsidiaries), as well as the more traditional property-based approach to the subject.
  • Detailed analysis of the legal structure and governance of charities, as well as their creation.
  • Highly practical in its outlook, taking into account the very latest Charity Commission policy, particularly in the light of the ongoing Review of the Register.
  • Includes numereous drafting tips.
  • Considers the recent sweeping changes to charity taxation and the potential impact on charities of the Human Rights Act 1998.
  • A detailed treatment of the impending changes to charity law in the Trustee Bill 2000 and to charity taxation in the Finance Bill 2000.
