Property Matters

08:00am - 10:00am

Investment in or disposal of charity property can generate significant returns to invest in charitable activities. However, charities need to be wary of the governance and tax pitfalls which could catch them unawares. Our experts will give a run-down of some key areas to consider and how charities can seek comfort that they are taking the best course of action available to them.


  • Judith Coplowe, PEM – Trustee duties in respect of property disposals
  • Lynda Borg, Savills – The role of a surveyor (Lynda Borg has more than 20 years experience as a Chartered Surveyor and Registered Valuer with Savills where she provides commercial property advice and services including valuations, rental and lease negotiations and business rates appeals.  She has extensive valuation experience for Charity Act compliance as well as accounts and secured lending purposes).
  • Judith Pederzolli, PEM – Direct tax implications of property investment and development
  • Rebecca Porter, PEM - VAT pitfalls and opportunities
