Charity Commission – Prepare a charity annual return

You must send an annual return (or update your details) every year if your charity is registered in England or Wales.

What a charity annual return includes

Before you start, you’ll need:

  • your charity’s online services password, you can request a new password if needed
  • your registered charity number
  • registration numbers for any linked charities (if applicable)

The annual return service for 2016 and 2017 is available.

You will need to submit your annual return for 2016 before you can do the return for 2017.

There will be a high demand for this service. We advise using it outside peak hours (10am to 3pm) to avoid any problems logging in.
