Charitable Incorporated Organisation

The CIO status became available to charities in England and Wales on 4 March 2013. NUS has since worked with BWB Solicitors to produce a new set of articles for this legal from. The Charities Commission will not be issuing a global consent letter for this form of incorporation so you should follow the process as in the guide to amending articles.
