Are your charity details up to date?

The Charity Commission is due to launch an improved service for updating charity details later this summer.

All charities must keep their details up to date by law and the commission will be improving the current service so decision-makers can keep a regular check on their details and update them when they change. As part of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance, the commission will be asking charities to check that the register details for trustees are up to date. This includes adding any new trustees and their contact details and you will also need to remove the details of any trustees who are no longer involved with your charity.

As part of the service improvements the commission will ask that all trustees supply their email address, or confirm that they do not have one.

Michaela Johns, HWB’s charity specialist, says: “The new service is set to go live later this summer at the same time as the 2018 annual return, so I would urge decision-makers to keep a close eye on this. The importance of keeping details correct and current cannot be overstated and it is a vital aspect of charity law compliance.”

For further details contact Michaela on 023 8046 1256.
