Charity FUNDcast: 2. Setting up a new charity? Know your CICs from your CIOs

In this episode, Emma and Giles discuss the best legal structure for a new not-for-profit enterprise, focusing on the differences between Community Interest Companies (CICs) and Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs). They go through the practical differences, how to access funding, tax reliefs, remuneration and changing from a CIC to a CIO. They also outline the setting up processes, governance requirements, and social aims to be considered.
