We regularly advise on the formation and administration of charities (both corporate and trust), including applying for registration with the Charities Regulator and obtaining charitable tax exemption from the Irish Revenue Commissioners, together with applications to recognise EU / EEA charities in this jurisdiction.
We provide a full range of advice to trustees, directors of and members of charitable bodies including regulatory, tax and compliance issues, trustee duties and risk management, with emphasis on their obligations under the Charities Act 2009.
We have advised corporate entities seeking to engage in charitable campaigns in Ireland on their legal and compliance requirements.
We have advised a number of charities in relation to public private projects in conjunction with other colleagues in the firm and the obligations arising under these structures.
We are also able to draw on our full service capability, to include corporate advice, to assist on mergers of corporate charities.
