Wed, 10/12/2008

The Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) is a new legal form for charities - the first incorporated legal form designed specifically with the needs of charities in mind. It will be available only to charities and will add to the existing range of forms that charities can use. Establishing a new corporate form designed specifically for charities was a recommendation of the Strategy Unit which the Government accepted. Provision was made for the CIO in the Charities Act 2006. The Office of the Third Sectori (OTS) and the Charity Commission are now seeking responses to this consultation on the detailed legal framework for CIOs from those who will use the CIO model and those who will work with CIOs. Deadline for responses to this consultation is 10 December 2008.
