Additional questions for charity annual return

The Charity Commission has started a consultation on a number of proposals for changes to the 2015 Annual Return, for charities in England and Wales. The Commission is proposing some additional questions, including requiring charities with incomes between £10,000 and £500,000 to provide key financial information, and the questions:

  •   How much of your charity’s total expenditure has been on campaigning activities?
  •   How much of your charity’s income was received from a) public service delivery b) private donations?

Responses by 12th August.
