Is COSRECI a charity in the UK? I have read in many places that by mutual agreements between Australia and the UK that COSRECI is accepted as being a charity in the UK because it is accepted as one in Australia. The more reading I do the more I doubt it. Maybe because it is tax exempt in Australia (where I don't believe it trades) then it is tax exempt in the UK but nowhere do I find written down that COSRECI is a CHARITY in the UK. I need to clear this up for the document I am writing concerning Business Rates belief. I know that the Church of Scientology England and Wales got turned down in 1999 when making an application to be a charity. Has COSRECI itself applied to be a charity in the UK? When and if they apply for business rates reduction then are they supplying the paperwork that proves they are a charity in the UK or are they saying they are a charity in Australia or are they just saying they were set up for charitable purposes to the UK Billing authorities?
