As a charity trustee, you and the trustees have 10 months to file your annual return and accounts if applicable.
Some charities who don’t send us these documents have ceased to exist but the trustees haven’t told us.
If you continually fail to file your annual return and accounts we assume your charity has ceased to exist and we will remove you from the register of charities.
To be reinstated you will need to produce evidence of continued operation and submit your annual return and accounts.
You will also have to provide us with full contact details so that you can receive an online password. The password will allow access to our online services in order to file the required missing paperwork.
The password will be sent to the last person we have listed as the contact for the charity. If this individual is no longer connected to the charity you should email us with details of the new contact.
