Consolidation of charity law

In England and Wales at present there are several charity acts (for example the Charities Act 1993 and the Charities Act 2006), the 2006 Act was not a consolidating act.

In September 2009 the Office of the Third Sector issued a consultation document on the consolidation of charity law.

Their aim is to make the existing legislation more user friendly. For example, provisions relating to the preparation of group accounts by charities will now be dealt with in the part which deals with charity accounts and not in a separate Schedule.

The closing date for the consultation is 4 December 2009, the document and the draft Charities Consolidation Bill can be found online at
