New annual return form for 2014
The new annual return form for charities is now available to complete online via the Charity Commission’s website after it had been devised by the regulator following a consultation last year. Whether the charity pays its trustees, raises money from the public and owns a trading subsidiary are some of the new questions that will be collected and displayed on the register of charities.
The annual return has to be completed by all registered charities with an income over £10,000 within 10 months of their financial year end. The Commission uses the information to promote good governance and to make sure that charities are accountable to the public. Details on the online register were viewed 6 million times last year.
