Consultation description

Currently, only charities with incomes of £500,000 and above need to provide detailed financial information in their annual returns.

This consultation is on the Charity Commission’s proposal to collect additional financial information from charities with incomes between £10,000 and £500,000 (and all CIOs regardless of income) from 2015.

This additional information will:

  • increase the accountability and transparency of charities
  • support the commission’s regulatory work
