Scottish identification rules come into force this week

Scottish charities must begin to refer to themselves specifically as charities this week as part of new rules governing how they identify themselves.

From 1 April, all Scottish charities’ letters, adverts, invoices and fundraising and campaign literature must also carry the name and charity number featured in the Scottish Charity Register as well as any other name a charity is known by.

The law was introduced last year, but has not been enforced until now to allow charities to use up their current stock of materials.

Full guidance on the subject is available from the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator’s website.
