Commission unlikely to charge charities for filing accounts
The Charity Commission's head of compliance monitoring, Neville Brownlee, reassured a public meeting this week that a portal for joint filing of a charitable company's accounts with the Commission and Companies House is a “much more likely outcome” than charging charities fees to file their accounts with the Commission.
On 1 July 2016, the Charity Commission launched a consultation on how it proposes to use its new power in section 1 of the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to issue official warnings to charities and charity trustees, as set out in draft guidance.
