Product description

Cited frequently in decisions in superior courts across Australia, including in the High Court of Australia, Law of Charity is a high-level work focusing on the law that governs and regulates the application of money or property for charitable purposes. Providing coverage of Australian law and, for chiefly comparative purposes, salient aspects of charity law in other common law jurisdictions (including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Singapore), this work is an exposition of the law pertaining to charitable objects, also encompassing the history of charity law, the privileges extended to charity and matters of jurisdiction vis-à-vis charity law. It concludes with a set of chapters dedicated to the reform of this area of law. Law of Charity is the ideal companion to Taxation of Charities and Not-for-profits, which is the essential resource for those who need to master non-profit tax issues or provide sound professional advice to the sector.
