Latest annual return available, along with guidance to help those completing it.
The updated online return which collects information from charities is now live on GOV.UK and ready for charities to use. The annual return is an essential service for collecting data to update the register of charities, and helps the Charity Commission to hold charities to account on behalf of the public.
All registered charities with an income of more than £10,000 and all Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) who are reporting on their financial years ending in 2015 must complete the online form. Sections of the data then populate the commission’s register of charities. The online public register was viewed more than 6 million times last year and is a key source of data about charities in England and Wales.
