Filing of accounts and annual returns at the Charity Commission
Charities have ten months from the end of the financial year to send their Accounts and Annual Return to the Charity Commission. A record of filing is shown on the Charity Commission’s website.
Since 2008 the Commission has used a ‘flagging’ system on its Register of Charities. Charities who have filed on time are flagged in green and charities with any outstanding documents are flagged in red.
The Commission is launching a regional press campaign to encourage local trustees to ensure their documents are filed on time. The aim is to increase the number of charities filing on time as last year 20% of Charities did not meet the filing deadline.
Should you have any queries on filing of accounts and annual returns, please contact our charities expert and a senior manager Wendy Bambrick on 01727 869141 or a member of our charities and the not-for-profit team.
