CHARITY MEETINGS DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK
The Government provided an exemption to the rule of 6 for trustee and members meeting where the meetings are necessary for providing charitable services, though it is recommended to keep a careful eye on whether these exemptions change.
Charitable companies and Charitable Incorporated Organisations are able to hold AGM’s and other members meetings online until 30 December 2020 by virtue of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, however for other types of meeting the first point of reference should be the charity’s governing document.
Where the situation prevents the filing of the charity accounts and annual reports it is requested by the Charity Commission that an email is sent with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
