Not for Profit

The Firm has extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector both for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs).  We advise on the establishment of various types of not-for-profit entities, such as companies limited by guarantee licensed under Section 42 of the Companies Act 2017, charitable societies and trusts, and social welfare associations, and on the various regulations which are applicable to such entities.  Additionally, we provide general advice on seeking tax-exempt status for such entities.
