In April 2017, United Glasgow Football Club was granted charitable status as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).

What is a SCIO?

The Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) is a new legal form for charities registered in Scotland. The SCIO will be a corporate body able to enter into contracts, employ staff, incur debts, own property, to sue and to be sued. As such, it will provide a high degree of protection against personal liability for its charity trustees. It will also provide some reassurance for those entering into contracts with it, and for creditors. Unlike charities that are companies limited by guarantee, SCIOs will have OSCR as a single regulator. The SCIO will provide another option for bodies wishing to register as charities, and for existing Scottish charities wishing to adopt a different constitutional form.

Why were SCIOs created?

The SCIO was proposed in the Charities and Trustee Investment Scotland Act 2005 as a legal form that would offer some protection to charity trustees from personal liability, while not subject to the same reporting and regulatory requirements as a company. Scottish Ministers announced in October 2010 that they would take steps to bring SCIOs into being from April 2011.
