Charity FAQ’s

A Charity is a Limited by Guarantee company created purely ‘For the Public Benefit’. Any surplus income the company generates will be reinvested into the business, and solely towards the business achieving its goals.

If a Charity company has a shortfall in its assets upon being wound up, the guarantors will have to put forward a guarantee, a nominal amount, stated in the company’s articles. This can be any amount thought fit, however it is usually £1. In a Charity it is not possible for guarantors to take a share of the profits.

To start a Charity, you will need:

  • A minimum of 1 Director and 1 Guarantor – These can be any person or corporate body, and can be the same person.
  • A UK Registered Office – You can use our Registered Office Service in the prestigious Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.
  • A Bespoke Memorandum and Articles of Association – This sets out the rules and regulations of the company and states each guarantor with their agreement to become members. We offer a Bespoke Memorandum and Articles of Association to all Companies999 customers, containing the Objects necessary for a Charity, such as the Non-Profit clause.
  • An aim definable as ‘For the Public Benefit’ – The aim of the charity, and the goal of any investment must be for the benefit of the public or a section of the public, and must have an identifiable benefit. e.g. providing water to people in deprived areas.

The options for Charitable Companies include:

  • 'Limited' Exemption – You can apply to be exempt from having the word Limited on the end of the name of the charity. You will need supporting documentation for this.
  • Charity Commission Registration – After your company is registered you can apply for registration with the Charity Commission. You can find all the information required by the Charity Commission here.
  • Tax Relief – Charities can receive relief on tax from most income, as long as the income goes towards the charitable purpose. In order to do this, there are certain requirements you must meet.
  • You must be recognised as a charity by HMRC.
  • You must spend all income on charitable purposes for the tax to be deducted.
