Registered Charities

Information sheets

Our plain language information sheets explain the Charities Act’s criteria and Charities Services compliance actions, guide applicants through the registration process, help charities to file Annual Returns, promote their registration and more.

We update the information sheets regularly, to reflect feedback we receive, new case law or legislation and improvements we make to our processes.

You can view the information sheets listed by category below, or view the information sheets in a sortable table.
