A trust board can be established by individuals (trustees) or by an unincorporated society. There are different requirements for each when applying for incorporation.

Keeping details up to date

Once you've registered your charitable trust board, you're required by law to keep certain information about it up to date.

This includes your addresses, your board’s name, and any changes to the trust or the trust board’s rules.
