The Kids Company Charity Debacle

Isn't it about time that there was a total reorganisation of the charity structure? First of all stop calling businesses 'charities'. Reserve the name 'charity' for a genuine altruistic organisation where people donate/work free of charge in their spare time. Then these 'charity' companies that have chief execs and full time paid staff, should be registered as normal businesses. Would limiting these ‘charity’ business salaries/overheads to a set percentage of donations i.e. 10%, really have a detrimental effect on the end user, personally i doubt it.

    Would they have to pay corporation tax too?

    If they were a business they would, as a charity they don't. amazes me that charities such as the dogs trust pays the chief exec £150,000 plus pensions/benefits, they're re-homing dogs for ***** sake and that does't take into account the other 13 directors on mega remuneration packages. :shock:

    Definitely, as well as their 'charity' practice of handing out cash in envelopes to kids every friday afternoon

    I don't think some of the larger charities, who help deal with some of the worst catastrophes on earth could operate without a paid staff or charity status so I'm not sure I can totally agree with you.

    But I understand the sentiment because I do think that governments farming out services to charities that ultimately they should be taking responsibility for is a complete joke.
