SCEN: Incorporation as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO)
16 December 2015
I am delighted to let you know that I heard yesterday that SCEN's application for Incorporation as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) has been successful. The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is satisfied that SCEN meets the charity test and the legal requirements for being a SCIO, and entered it in the Scottish Charity Register on 3 December 2015. This means that SCEN is now an incorporated body having charitable status under the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005.
