The first parts of Charities Act 2022 came into force on 31 October 2022. These deal primarily with changes to the rules around failed fundraising appeals and the power to pay charity trustees for the provision by them of goods and services to their charity.
We were also expecting the new rules around ex-gratia payments to be made at the same time. But the Government has decided to give these changes some further consideration. That said, we think that if any changes are made to the provisions within the Act prior to eventual implementation, they will not affect the vast majority of charities.
You can find more information in our recently updated Briefing Papers:
Further provisions of Charities Act 2022 will be brought into force over the next 12 months. These include rules relating to how a charity can amend its governing document, and changes to the rules restricting disposals of, and mortgaging of, charity land and buildings.
