Question

Hi, we are a registered charity in Ireland and we regularly produce our year end accounts. The question is do we need to make a return of our year end accounts to the registrar of charities just like we make returns to the company registrars office?

 

i look forward to your response.

Hello Kemi

 

There is at present no Charities Regulator, so the short answer is 'no'.  If and when this changes, I am sure The Wheel and others will be vocal in making charities  aware of any changes in their reporting requirements. You are clearly interested in good governance. Have you had a look at this yet: www.governancecode.ie?  Wishing you every success.

Hi Kemi,Sandra is right,

Hi Kemi,

Sandra is right, there is currently no Charity Regulator in ireland.

The Charities Act 2009 does provide for the establisment of a Regulator, but that part of the Act has not been commenced.
