284APower to borrow from permanent endowment: generalE+W

(1)This section applies to any available endowment fund of a charity.

(2)The charity trustees may resolve to borrow an amount, not exceeding the permitted amount, from the available endowment fund if they are satisfied—

(a)that it is expedient for the amount to be borrowed, in the light of the purposes set out in the trusts to which the fund is subject and the purposes of the charity, and

(b)that arrangements are in place for the amount to be repaid within 20 years of being borrowed.

(3)Any amount borrowed in accordance with subsection (2) no longer forms part of the available endowment fund and, as a result, is freed from the restrictions with respect to the expenditure of capital that applied to it when it was comprised in that fund.

(4)An amount borrowed in accordance with subsection (2) may not be used to repay (in whole or in part) any amount previously borrowed from permanent endowment (whether the previous borrowing was by virtue of this section or otherwise).

(5)When repaying an amount borrowed (whether in whole or in part), the charity trustees may resolve to pay an additional amount not exceeding the maximum estimated capital appreciation.

(6)Any—

(a)repayment of an amount borrowed, and

(b)are (subject to paragraph (a)) in addition to any other power to borrow that the charity or charity trustees may have.

(9)In this section “available endowment fund”, in relation to a charity, means—

(a)the whole of the charity’s permanent endowment if it is all subject to the same trusts, or

(b)any part of its permanent endowment which is subject to any particular trusts that are different from those to which any other part is subject.

(10)If a resolution under section 104A(2) has effect in respect of an available endowment fund (or portion of such a fund), references in this section to an “available endowment fund” include that fund (or portion) but do not include any returns from the investment of the fund (or portion) which have not been accumulated.

284CCalculation of the “maximum estimated capital appreciation”E+W
