Proposed changes to annual return and the Register of Charities from 2014
The Charity Commission is consulting on proposals to amend the information it collects from registered charities through the annual return, which all registered charities with an income of £10,000 or above have to submit. The annual return is an opportunity for charities to tell the public what they do and the benefits they provide. The information provided in the annual return feeds directly through to each charity’s entry on the Register of Charities (the ‘Register’) and is freely available to the public via the Charity Commission’s website.
The Charity Commission’s prime concern is the information it needs to meet its strategic priorities and to be an effective regulator. It wants to use the annual return to promote good governance.
The information displayed on the Register is also used by the public to find out how charities spend their money and what they have achieved. People and organisations who work with the sector also use the information to conduct research and to inform decision making.
