New annual return for English and Welsh charities

The Charity Commission has released the latest annual return for charities to complete, which is available in Welsh as well as English for the first time.

“All registered charities with an income of more than £10,000 and all Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) reporting on their financial years ending in 2016 must complete the online form within 10 months of the end of their financial year. Sections of the data then populate the commission’s online public register of charities, which is a key source of data about charities in England and Wales.”
