Drafting new guidance on the Scottish ‘charity test’

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has produced new draft guidance about how it interprets and applies the charity test.

The guidance explains what OSCR takes into consideration when deciding if an organisation can become, or continue to be, a charity in Scotland. These are also the things that charity trustees should be thinking about to make sure their charity continues to comply with this part of Scottish Charity law.

Consultation runs to 26th May. OSCR intro with links to the draftat http://www.oscr.org.uk/about/our-work/consultations/draft-charity-test-guidance-consultation (pdf download is 750KB).
