Following the enactment of the Companies’ Act 2014 and the establishment of the Charities Regulatory Authority in 2015, under the terms of the Charities Act 2009, the Arts Council committed in 2015 to assisting arts organisations in complying with the changes in legislation.
One of the governance changes dictated by the Companies Act is to convert existing Memorandum and Articles of Association into a Constitution compliant with the Act. The Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) is the structure that is considered by the Art Council to be the most appropriate for most arts organisations. This template has been therefore commissioned by the Arts Council, based on the CLG company structure, which may be used by arts organisations as a reference point in revising their memorandum and articles of association.
