Charities Act 2009

The Charities Act 2009 was signed into law on the 28th February 2009, by the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.  It is important to note that while the Act was signed into law in February 2009 it has not as yet become operational.  This will happen when the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs signs a Commencement Order for parts of or the entire Act.  According to the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, the position in May 2010 is that it is expected that the Charities Act will become operational within two years.
