Dear colleagues and friends,
As the Year of the Rabbit 2023 hops gently forward, it is our pleasure to take this opportunity to give you an update on our situation and activities. We hope that you will continue to lend us your valued support and interest and to participate in our various events.
The GCA Board of Trustees have submitted GCA’s final Trustees Annual Return (TAR, from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022) of the existing charity (registration number: 1154640) to the Charity Commission in December 2022. On the 17th May 2022 our application to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) registered with the Charity Commission was approved (registration number: 1198983). This means that the first financial year of the CIO will be from 17th May 2022 to 31st March 2023 (deadline for submitting TAR is 31st January 2024). Thereafter the reporting periods will coincide with the UK financial year, i.e. 1st April to 31st March every year.

The Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) is a new legal form for a charity. It has been created in response to requests from the charitable sector. It is a new incorporated form of charity which is not a limited company or subject to company regulation.
CIOs have been designed specifically for charitable groups, allowing them to register just once with the Charity Commission as an incorporated form of charity which is not a company. This cuts out the need to register with and report to Companies House.
Reduced administrative burden is proposed as just one of the benefits of becoming a CIO. In addition to this, the CIO would have its own legal personaltiy and so can enter into contracts in its own right rather than in the name of individual trustees. Trustees will also have limited liability.
CIO members still have key rights in law and under the Constitution and trustees are still responsible for managing the organisation (note that trustees for CIOs will only be trustees, they will not have the dual role of Company Director).
