There are a number of advantages to registering a non-profit company in Scotland, among them that it's relatively straightforward to set up the vehicle for doing so; that being a company limited by guarantee. This type of a Scottish company is for organisations such as charities that are not engaged in making profits, where its officers do not gain financial rewards for their work in it.
If it is a charity that's being set up in Scotland using this kind of company structure, approval for its establishment must also be obtained from the Charity Commission. Please contact us, if you are willing to create and establish a charity business in Scotland.
The benefit of doing this is that the charity will be exempt from almost all taxes and there are significant advantages with that amount of business rates that are payable.

In addition, you can change them at any time.
