Charity annual return deadline approaches

4th October 2018

The deadline for submitting the 2017 annual return is 31 October, if your charity has a 12-month accounting period. Not filing on time means you will go into default, and that information will be displayed to the public on the charity register.

A press release from the Charity Commission discusses the implications of providing incorrect financial information, including an impact on public trust. A recent report has shown that 40% of small charities are submitting inaccurate data in their annual returns.
