Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO)


The Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) is a new legal form for a charity.

The two sets of regulations which complete the legal framework for CIOs have now been agreed by Parliament and The Charity Commission are accepting applications to register completely new organisations that wish to be CIOs.

Please visit The Charity Commission’s website to see the implementation timetable for full details to register your CIO.

If you would like further information, please contact our charities expert, Amanda Maskery  on 0191 226 7838 or by email to amanda.maskery@sintons.co.uk
