Highly practical in its outlook, it combines a comprehensive and authoritative account of the law with pragmatic advice on procedure. This timely new edition offers essential commentary on the Charities Act 2006 and the companion consolidation legislation, and will guide practitioners and academics alike through the important changes to the law, including the establishment of a Charity Tribunal, the creation of new charitable corporations (CIOs), and changes to the administration, registration, and accounting procedures of charities.
