Overseas operation details on charity register

Solicitors Bates Well Braithwaite has had assurances from the Charity Commission that the latter will be providing guidance on resolving security concerns about charities providing details about which countries they operate in, and related expenditure. Since January 2013 these have been mandatory questions in the Annual Return, and would otherwise appear on the revamped online charity register, which could be live soon.

Pending such guidance, BWB advises any concerned charities to write to the Commission to ask that the information is not displayed online. Third Sector has some more background.
