Charitable Incorporated Organisations

This website is designed to provide charities and other not for profit organisations with everything they need to know about Charitable Incorporated Organisations.   

The Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) is a relatively new type of legal entity specifically tailored for charities registered in England and Wales.   It is available to new organisations and existing charities that wish to convert into the CIO form.

 

Join our CIO update List If you are a charity or other voluntary association and you would like us to add you to our CIO update mailing list, E-mail us at info@gocio.co.uk or click here to go to our feedback form. We will then automatically e-mail you when there is any news about CIO availability.

CIO benefits CIO's are designed to provide charities with the benefits of incorporation (limited liability for trustees and the ability to hold assets in the charity's own name - for further details click here), while avoiding the costs and administration of dual registration - CIOs will only need to register and file accounts and returns with the Charity Commission, whereas charitable companies currently have to register and file both with the Charity Commission and Companies House.

CIOs - protection against insolvencyThe principal advantage of the CIO is that it provides limited liability for charitymembers and trustees (committee members).
