The Charity Commission has a new process for submitting annual returns and filing amendments.
To access online services, each charity is required to register a ‘My Charity Commission Account’. Please note that your previous charity login details will no longer be valid.
Registration can be initiated by a telephone request 0300 066 9197 or email: email@example.com. The person making this request should be the charities primary administrator.
There is currently a 14 day waiting period to hear back from the Charity Commission following the initial request. Therefore, we advise to action this ASAP if your annual return submission deadline is approaching, usually being 10 months following the end of the relevant accounting period.
Once the primary administrator’s account is set up, they will be able to invite other users (e.g. fellow trustees / professional advisors / 3rd party users) to set up their accounts and grant additional permissions/access as applicable.
