Charity Commission report shows almost 40% of small charities are providing inaccurate financial information

Not enough small charities are providing correct financial information in their annual returns is the finding of a new report from the Charity Commission.

In a review of a sample of charities, 38% of charities with incomes below £25,000 per annum were found to be submitting inaccurate data.  Small charities make up two thirds of all charities on the register and basic information on income and expenditure is the only financial information most are routinely required to provide to the Commission.

The Charity Commission, which regulates charities in England and Wales, has concluded that many charities task someone with insufficient knowledge of their organisation’s accounts with completing their annual return figures, resulting in errors.

If you are uncertain about which figures go into your annual return get in touch.
