Regulated consents

Under the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 (the ‘Act’), some changes to a charitable company’s articles of association must be approved by the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland before they take effect.

Alterations to the objects, dissolution clause or authorisations for benefits to be paid to directors in any charitable company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, or Articles of Association, must receive prior written consent from the Commission before they can become effective. For more information, please see the Consents for charitable companies section of our website. 

The spreadsheet below details the Commission's current consents to alterations for regulated consents. Each consent is published on this spreadsheet for 45 days, after which it is moved to the Recent casework decisions page.
