You can register your charity’s details with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to get tax back on things like Gift Aid donations.
You can also continue with a previously saved application.
Use form ChV1 if you’re already registered but want to change your details.
This guide is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
What you need
You need to register as an organisation with Government Gateway.
You’ll then need your charity’s:
- bank account details and financial accounts
- officials’ details, including dates of birth and National Insurance numbers
- registration number if you’ve registered your charity with a regulator
- charitable objectives (sometimes called purposes)
- governing document (sometimes called a rulebook) - this explains how your charity is run
Before you start
This is different from registering with the Charity Commission.
