Charities

We have a very long association with regional and national charities of all kinds.

For existing charities we provide a review service to ensure that their activities are not out of step with their constitutions, advise on possible changes and negotiate with the Charity Commission.  And we advise on compliance and property issues, trading, VAT and a whole host of problems that charities encounter.

Tozers have set up several Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) and companies to protect trustees from personal liability.  One of our partners was the prime mover behind establishing and agreeing with the Charity Commission a model CIO constitution and procedure for religious charities.

We offer a fixed fee legal advice and support service which is a genuinely innovative and cost-effective way for you to obtain all the legal advice you need to ensure your charity is well governed and runs smoothly. For more information click here: Charities Legal Advice & Support Service (CLASS)

Our staff include members of the Charity Law Association (CLA), the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a number of other organisations. Two partners are recognised leaders in the charities field, and several others have practical, hands-on experience as governors or trustees of a wide variety of schools and other charities. We work closely with agencies such as the Charity Commission and other bodies involved in the sector.

What clients say

Richard and his staff were always very helpful, courteous and prompt in responding to issues.
