Company Formation & Charitable Status

Tuesday 28 April 2020 2.00pm - 5.00pm

COVID-19 UPDATE: It is with regret that we have taken the decision to postpone this training course which was due to take place on 28 April 2020 at the Albany, London; we plan to reschedule it in the Autumn.

For those who have already booked, we will transfer your place on to the next course and keep you informed as of the new date.

We are hoping to run a short Zoom webinar on this subject. Please keep an eye out for more details.

This course will explain the legal issues and the practicalities of setting up and running a Limited Company and the benefits and disadvantages of Charitable Status.

In this half day seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Decide whether their organisation should be a Company Limited by Guarantee, a Community Interest Company or a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
  • Assess whether and when Charitable Status is appropriate for their organisation.
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of Company Directors and Boards in the running of a Company.

‘I found the session really useful. The information was well delivered, clear and made relevant to everyone in the room.’ Lesley Anne Rose, Open Road Ltd

Target Audience

It is aimed primarily at those who are considering whether to register a Company or apply for Charitable Status.


This half-day course is presented as a seminar with plenty of opportunity for questions, discussion and learning from fellow-participants’ experiences.
