In general, a company limited by guarantee is set up for the purpose of advancement of education, religion, relief of poverty, trust and foundation, etc. Most institutions formed by this structure are not for profit-making, but they cannot be charitable. If an institution would like to be a charity, it must be established for purposes which are exclusively charitable according to law.

If an institution is fit for any of the following purposes, we can help them to apply to be an approved charitable institute (ACI).

  • Relief of poverty
  • Advancement of education
  • Advancement of religion
  • Other purpose of a charitable nature beneficial to the community and not falling under any of the previous headings
