Updated trustee form for registering Scottish charities

Scottish charity regulator OSCR has updated its Charity Trustee Declaration Forms, used in applications for charitable status. From October onwards only the new forms will be accepted.

These forms allow the people in management and control of the charity – the charity trustees – to assure us that they are aware of their responsibilities and are not disqualified. The new form also collects details allowing us to email all the charity trustees details of registration and charity trustee duties should the organisation be granted charitable status.

Their news item has a link to the new form (pdf, 125KB).

Note: no need for existing registered charities to do anything.
