Leeds Day Support of Addenbrooke's Free Will Scheme 2014
The Wills and Estate Planning Team at Leeds Day were delighted to participate in Make a Will Week in association with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust earlier this year.
We prepared Wills for clients without charge for a week in May and in return clients made a donation to Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust to support improvements to patient care, facilities and research.
Together we and our clients raised £750 and we would like to thank everyone who made their Will with us and who gave such a valuable donation to such a good cause.
Although this campaign has ended, if you would like to make a Will or an appointment to discuss your requirements for a new Will or Estate Planning, please contact at us firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0844 567 2222 and ask to speak with a member of our helpful and friendly team.
Commission unlikely to charge charities for filing accounts
The Charity Commission's head of compliance monitoring, Neville Brownlee, reassured a public meeting this week that a portal for joint filing of a charitable company's accounts with the Commission and Companies House is a “much more likely outcome” than charging charities fees to file their accounts with the Commission.
On 1 July 2016, the Charity Commission launched a consultation on how it proposes to use its new power in section 1 of the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to issue official warnings to charities and charity trustees, as set out in draft guidance.
