Charity Legal Update - July 2019

Our legal update for in-house charity lawyers.

As well as details of recent legislation and cases, we include information on consultations from HM Treasury on 5MLD, which is likely to have an impact on charitable trusts, and from BEIS on proposals to increase transparency in companies (including charitable companies).

There are also the usual updates on guidance published by the Charity Commission and HMRC, news from HMCTS on preparations for the changes to the system for notification of legacies to charities, and some interesting facts and figures on giving in the UK.
