New forms now available

New forms are now available! These include the forms used to register, update your details, and file your annual returns with us. We’ve also updated the help text that guides you through the forms, to make them easier to use.

The changes include the new reporting standards set by the External Reporting Board (XRB), changes to the Charities Act 2005, and other changes to improve the information on the register.

The new reporting standards are not mandatory yet, so you’ll be able to choose if the annual return you complete is under the new standards or not. If you use the new standards you are able to use the XRB’s new performance report templates.

For more information head to the New Forms Hub on our website.

In the mean time you can Search the Register or use the Advanced Search on our website.
