RemunerationS

67Remuneration for servicesS

(1)A charity trustee may not be remunerated for services provided to the charity (including services provided in the capacity as a charity trustee or under a contract of employment) unless subsection (2) entitles the trustee to be so remunerated.

(2)Where a charity trustee of a charity—

(a)provides services to or on behalf of the charity, or

(b)might benefit from any remuneration for the provision of such services by a person with whom the trustee is connected,

the person providing the services (the “service provider”) is entitled to be remunerated from the charity's funds for doing so only if the conditions set out in subsection (3) are met.

(3)Those conditions are—

(a)that the maximum amount of the remuneration—

(i)is set out in a written agreement between the service provider and the charity (or, as the case may be, its charity trustees) under which the service provider is to provide the services in question, and

(ii)is reasonable in the circumstances,

(b)that, before entering into the agreement, the charity trustees were satisfied that it would be in the interests of the charity for those services to be provided by the service provider for that maximum amount,

(c)that, immediately after entering into the agreement, less than half of the total number of charity trustees of the charity fall within subsection (4), and

(d)that the charity's constitution does not contain any provision which expressly prohibits the service provider from receiving the remuneration.

(4)A charity trustee falls within this subsection if the trustee is—

(a)party (in the capacity of a service provider) to a written agreement of the type described in subsection (3)(a)(i) under which any obligation is still to be fully discharged,

(b)entitled to receive remuneration from the charity's funds otherwise than by virtue of such an agreement, or

(c)connected with any other charity trustee who falls within sub-paragraph (a) or (b).

(5)Nothing in subsections (1) or (2) prevents a charity trustee or other service provider from receiving any remuneration from a charity's funds which that service provider is entitled to receive by virtue of—

(a)any authorising provision of the charity's constitution which was in force on 15 November 2004,

(b)an order made by the Court of Session, or

(c)[F1this Act or any other] enactment.

(6)For the purposes of subsection (5)(a), an “authorising provision” is a provision which refers specifically to the payment of remuneration—

(a)to the service provider concerned,

(b)where that service provider is a charity trustee, to a charity trustee, or

(c)where that service provider is connected to a charity trustee, to any person so connected.

(7)Where a charity trustee or other service provider is remunerated in contravention of this section, the charity may recover the amount of remuneration; and proceedings for its recovery must be taken if OSCR so directs.
