Annual Returns to Charities Services

Charities Services have revised the Annual Return.  There is now one Annual Return for Tier 3 and one Annual Return for Tier 4 registered charities.  They are different and care will need to be taken when filing your Annual Return

The new Annual Return has a number of new questions and is longer.  I would strongly suggest that you print them out and look through them now so that you are prepared when you go online and complete the form.

Who those who will elect Tier 1 or 2, there is no paper based Annual Return.  The Return is online only (that is our understanding) so there are no links provided.

The Connexional Office will provide some guidelines on how to complete the new sections in due course.
