Equity Study HelpWatch
I got this question for my equity exam and I am just a little confused. I am really stressing about it and have been pulling my hair out all day about it and it is making me feel really stupid and I was wondering If anyone can shed any light on It as I am unsure how to structure it etc.
Here is the question:
When explaining section 4 Charites Act 2011 on the public benefit requirement,Davies and Virgo say that, ‘[t]he old presumptions of benefit have been abolished,which means that in each case an organization will have to demonstrate that its purposes do benefit the public. If this cannot be established then a new charity will not be registered and an existing charity will cease to be registered.’ Equity &
Trusts: Text, Cases and Materials (3rd edn. OUP 2019) 190.
Using appropriate case law and commentary, evaluate the extent to which the Charities Act 2011 has improved the way the public benefit requirement is understood and applied in the law on Charities.
