Charities and not for profit

Unincorporated associations and trusts together make up two thirds of all charities registered in Scotland.

Those types of charities are described as unincorporated because they do not have capacity to enter into contracts or hold assets.

It falls to individual members and trustees to do those things on behalf of the charity, at the risk of personal liability.

Charitable companies and SCIOs are examples of incorporated charities and they are proving popular in new charity applications, largely because they afford trustees better protection.
