Product description

Why should you buy The Charities Acts Handbook

The Charities Acts Handbook is the latest guide to charity law from the specialist charity law team at Bates Wells Braithwaite.

This new volume contains expert commentary and analysis of the 1992 and 2011 Charities Acts together with the full text of both Acts, copies of relevant statutory instruments and signposts to possible future areas for reform.

For those who have found Stephen Lloyd's Charities: The New Law an essential companion, this is the updated version - published with the benefit of eight years' experience of how the law has been interpreted and applied in practice.

Of particular use will be the detailed chapter on the new legal form for charities, the Charitable Incorporated Organisation, and a new chapter on exempt charities.

The Handbook is an indispensable reference for lawyers, accountants, trustees and all those involved in the running and management of charities.
