The Netherland

According to legal advisers at  “The legal framework and charity formation of the Netherlands states that the word charity means to the tax qualification of an entity which nearly pursues a people purpose. It is referred to as an ANBI ALGERNEEN NUT BEOGENDE INTELING or a general interest pursuing organization. The implementation of an ANBI has no bearing in company law or civil law. But implementation is found in the general code of tax. The regulations and the charitable purposes in Netherlands show that whether an entity is fulfilling a people purpose or not is a matter of face and the constitutional files of the entity are correct in this context. The donor relief and taxation policy is that the donations to qualifying ANBI are exempt from inheritance tax and donor tax. Donations by qualifying ANBI are exempt from donor tax if the rules are met for exemption. The Netherlands also do philanthropy work internationally.” Resource:

UK – Scotland

Compliance and governance in Scotland states that like the charity commission for wales and England the office of the Scottish charity regulator which is also known as the OSCR is a non-ministerial government bureau or department made to give a one door regulatory office that encompasses the registration of functions, supervision, monitoring, support, information and investigation for the Scottish charitable sector. The office of the Scottish charity regulator effectively took over the job for charitable status within the realms of Scotland from many charities registered and HMRC in the wales and England now find themselves coerce to register with the office of the Scottish charity regulator in order to accept with the changes in the legislation of Scottish that was passed since the office was made. The charitable purposes states that it should be noted that an organization that can carry out work as a registered charity under the English law is not charitable automatically under the Scottish law.
