What are my duties as a registered organisation?
Registered organisations must -
· Make, keep and retain records of all financial transactions in order to evidence the use or application of the organisations funds, assets and income. These records will need to be easily retrievable upon a request and must be sufficiently detailed to evidence that the funds are being applied and used in a manner consistent with the Organisations purposes and objectives. The records must be kept for a minimum of 6 years.
- File an annual renewal between 1 and 31 January of each year.
· File annual financial statements/accounts with the Office of the Registrar.
· Inform the Registrar as soon as possible of any changes in the registered details of a Charity. (Forms are available on this website).
A failure to comply with the above requirements is an offence.
