I am the trustee of a small charity. Because our income is now slightly in excess of £5000 the Charities Act 1993 requires us to register with the Charity Commission. The Act permits the Secretary of State to make an Order increasing this figure. If the sum was doubled to £10000 this would remove the burden of registration from many small charities
Why does this idea matter?
Remove unnecessary bureaucracy for unpaid trustees of small charities
