Charity Law guidance drafted and out for consultation

Charity Commissioner issues consultation on draft guidance for charities

05 Feb 2018

Draft guidance on the Charities (Jersey) Law has been published by the Charity Commissioner, and he wants your views on it!

Any organisation wishing to become a charity or retain its charity status, raise funds from the general public, and receive tax exemptions will need to pass the 'charity test' - that is proving you have charitable purpose and deliver a public benefit.

The draft guidance can be found on the Charity Commissioner's website, along with the draft registration form (for when the register of charities opens on May 1st). Those wishing to give feedback can either attend one of the events (details to be confirmed on the Commissioner's website) or submit comments via the website, email or post.

The consultation will close on Friday 16th March 2018.
