This guidance is about how we, the Scottish Charity Regulator, interpret and apply the charity test.

It explains what we take into consideration when deciding if an organisation can become, or continue to be, a charity in Scotland.

These are also the things that charity trustees should be thinking about to make sure their charity continues to comply with this part of Scottish Charity law.
