Charities Act 2022 – revolution or evolution?

Webinar | Charities

About This Webinar

Tuesday 24 May, 09:30 - 10:15

On 24 February 2022, the long-anticipated Charities Bill received Royal Assent becoming the Charities Act 2022, and will bring into effect a raft of changes designed to allow charities to run more efficiently and with less red tape.

The new Act will implement most of the recommendations that were made by the Law Commission in its 2017 report "Technical Issues in Charity Law" and aims to reduce administrative burdens for charities, saving both time and money.

In this webinar, our new charities partner we talked through the key reforms and how they will impact your charity, including the following:

  • Amending your governing document

  • Failed fundraising appeals

  • Permanent endowment

  • Payments to trustees

  • Ex gratia payments

  • Mergers

Changes to agricultural law – what it means for charities

Webinar | Charities

About This Webinar

Thursday 17 March 2022, 9:30 - 10:15

Farming has a long history of government subsidy and whilst the UK was part of the European Union that subsidy was governed under the Common Agricultural Policy with what many will know as the basic payment scheme.  However, with the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, we have entered a period of transition where by the direct payments under CAP will be phased out by the end of 2027 and it will be replaced with a whole new system of environmental land management (ELMs) introduced in the Agriculture Act 2020.

This new system whilst it is being referred to as a replacement subsidy it is not being provided on a like for like basis and we see the introduction of a new farming system based on public money for public goods.

This webinar will provide an overview of this new system and how this might apply to charities operating within the agriculture sector. We will explore:

  • For those charities with investments in agriculture land how these changes may shape conversations with your tenants or land managers

  • We will touch on what other opportunities might be available to help maximise the financial return from rural land

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

This webinar will be of interest to charities and charitable organisations with agricultural land and/ or with objectives that centre around the furtherance of agriculture or horticulture.

Our Speaker

Agriculture

Family, farms and business are intrinsically linked in the agriculture and rural affairs sector.
The legal requirements of the agricultural sector can be complex and you need a team who are real experts in agriculture law – lawyers that understand and have experience of the issues affecting you and your business.

Whose art is it anyway?

About This Webinar

Thursday 3 February 2022, 09:30 - 10:15 BST

Museums, galleries and other cultural institutions can find themselves in the situation where they have objects of great value (culturally and/or financially) but where there is a dispute as to the ownership of that object.

In this webinar, we looked at:

  • The often tricky legal issues that arise

  • How those disputes can be resolved

Andrew Wilkinson, our head of charities and contentious probate, was joined by Luke Harris, barrister at Five Stone Buildings. Luke has acted in a variety of arts and cultural property disputes, including disputes in relation to paintings by Matisse, Winslow Homer and Monet.
