Fundraising question

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question but couldn't find anything else in a search. Can anyone please advise re regulations about fundraising. I've been asked by a couple of business' if they could have fundraising tins  for counters. Is this allowed? I'm thinking there are some rules around collecting the money and do I need formal permission from anyone? I'd be grateful for any advice or signpost to any regs please. See More

"Hi Karen Id recommend you contact the Regulator for formal guidance, they usually respond within 24 hrs or so. My own suggestion is you could form the new CIC and use the 'trading as' until the process is complete. I believe permission…"

I've made an error! Advice to set up cic Ltd by guarantee aside Ltd co with shares

Hello all, I hope someone can help. In haste I formed a Ltd company as I wanted to get my promo stuff out there, but it's Ltd by shares with me as sole director.I'm now filling in the forms for conversion and I see I am unable to change to a cic limited by guarantee. I'm heavily reliant on future funding so it seems important to remedy this error. I see that it is possible to create another cic from scratch which is Ltd by guarantee. I'm wondering how difficult this is, and what do I need to…See More
