Annual Returns

If you become registered, you will need to file an Annual Return.

You will be required to report annually by completing an Annual Return and providing non financial and financial information through a performance report/financial statements that comply with reporting standards. A fee may apply for submitting your annual return.

Charities Services publishes some of this information on the Charities Register as part of our commitment to promoting public trust and confidence, and in accordance with the requirements of the Charities Act 2005.

Annual Returns must be filed within six months of your balance date. Failure to file Annual Returns is one of the main reasons that registered charities are deregistered.
