The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that it will be rarely the case that charities can be removed from the register and it will be even rarer for both the governing instrument ofa charity and its property to be removed. The research methods employed included a review of literature, case law and experience drawn from working as a lawyer at the Charity Commission from 1988-1993 and subsequently in private practice to the present day. In Chapter 6 documentary analysis was undertaken when examining the issue of removal from the register in the context of Charity Commission inquiries through an examination of inquiry reports over a two-year period between 2003-2004. The research methods used have been followed with a view to securing an upto- date objective analysis ofthe law as it relates to the removal of charities from the register and then an analysis of the Charity Commission's approach to the removal of charities from the register. The thesis is written on the basis that the Charities and Companies Acts 2006 have been implemented. Otherwise the law is stated as it exists on 1st October 2007.
