In recognition of the continuing public health crisis and the difficulties faced by registered charities at this time, the Board of the Charities Regulator has exercised its power to specify an alternative period for the filing of annual reports under section 52 of the Charities Act 2009.

Annual reports which were due to be filed with the Charities Regulator on any date from 12 March 2020 to 15 December 2020 inclusive, may now be prepared and submitted to the Charities Regulator at any time up to 16 December 2020.
