I have been reading and researching various articles from various sites. I have a question and haven't found the answer yet.
How do I, and what stage should a register the name of the notforprofit org/charity I am planning?
There's loads of information on setting up charities on the Charity Commissions web site about registration. If an organisations income is less than £5,000 a year it doesn't need to register but will still be regulated by the Charity Commission.
I hope that helps, let us know how you get on.
