Zedra Fiduciary Services (UK) Ltd V Attorney General Case Note

NSC pupil barrister, Chloe Rixon pens a case note on the recent Court of Appeal case, Zedra Fiduciary Services (UK) Ltd V Attorney General. In this case, the approach to making cy-près schemes under s.67 Charities Act 2011 was decisively clarified. The case centred on the National Fund, a charitable trust aimed at reducing the National Debt, and explored the appropriate allocation of its substantial funds through competing proposals.

Chloe’s summary breaks down the complexities of cy-près schemes under the Charities Act 2011 and highlights essential aspects of s.67(3), shedding light on why the Court endorsed the Attorney General’s proposed scheme within legal boundaries.
