Outcome from charities review

Aug 13, 2015 | News

The request has disclosed the advice Cabinet received on whether, and how, it could proceed with such a review. It appears that in 2012 the advice recommended a targeted review of the ‘charitable purpose’ definition (and related issues) as the most appropriate course of action, as a compromise instead of a ‘first principles review’ of the entire charities act. The more narrow review of charitable purpose could have been completed by end of 2013, well ahead of the originally signaled 2015 date. So why was a different decision made- to do no review at all?

Note in particular Document 3 as the summary of the advice. Read the full document here.
