Charitable Incorporated Organisations

Coventry and Warwickshire CDA offer support and advice on a range of legal structures, including a bespoke service to assist you with Charity Commission registration of the newly introduced structure, known as the Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).   
This new legal form is designed for non-profit organisations throughout England and Wales.    
Advantages of becoming a CIO   

  • Limited personal liability for trustees
  • Suitable for small to medium sized organisations- simpler than establishing a charitable company 
  •  Able to employ staff
  • Only need to report to the Charities Commission 
  • Can enter into contracts and agreements
  • Can own freehold or lease property
  • No requirement for £5000 annual income 
  • Ability to transfer charitable assets into a CIO
  • Issued with a charity registration number
  • Charitable tax benefits 
Our experienced Advisers can ensure that you choose the right legal structure for your organisation and that you clearly demonstrate to the Charity Commission that you are constituted with charitable purposes and for the benefit of the public.      
We can offer you a package of support which is right for you.
