New Charity Commission online portal – Set up your new account!
Russell-Cooke legal firm, have sent a timely reminder about the Charity Commission’s new portal. See below for details.
At the beginning of August 2023, the Charity Commission introduced a new ‘My Charity Commission Account’. This is now the only way for trustees and charity contacts to access the Charity Commission’s online services, so it is important that charity contacts and trustees set up new accounts.
Your charity’s contact should have received an email from the Charity Commission inviting them to sign up for the new service. If your charity contact has not received it, we suggest that you Contact the Commission.
Trustees of your charity will require a link from your charity’s registered contact to register for the service. It can also be used by other authorised people (such as your charity’s solicitors and accountants).
You can log in to My Charity Commission Account here.
The online services include:
- updating your charity’s details.
- submitting your charity’s annual returns.
- making changes to your governing document, your charity’s name or your charity’s financial year end.
Please note, your charity must submit any remaining annual returns for 2022, and all returns going forwards, via this new service. The Commission will launch the 2023 annual return in late August 2023 via My Charity Commission Account.
The Charity Commission has published guidance on how to set up an account.
