Charity annual return and online register

The annual return form for 2014 from the Charity Commission (England and Wales) has been updated. There is new guidance on completing the form, but after being announced on 2nd April the news release links have disappeared *. See Civil Society Media news instead http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/governance/news/content/17284/, which has the guidance link (pdf, 240KB) of http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/media/603480/ar14_guidancenotes.pdf.

Civil Society Media also reports that the Commission plans to publish a new online register by the end of May which will display more information on charities. It will launch in ‘beta’, allowing for changes in response to feedback, http://www.civilsociety.co.uk/governance/news/content/17299/.

* UPDATE – Commission news release dated 3rd April is here: http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/news/new-annual-return-form-for-2014-goes-live/
