The Charities Act 2011 came into effect on 14 March 2012. It is the Act of Parliament which sets out how all charities in England and Wales are registered and regulated.
It replaces most of the Charities Acts 1992, 1993 and 2006 and all of the Recreational Charities Act 1958. All registered charities are required to prepare a Trustees’ Annual Report. It is a key document because:
- It sets out the charity’s achievements and activities in the year for the public benefit
- It explains what the charity is trying to do and how it goes about it
- Trustees can use it to explain matters that cannot be fully explained by the accounts alone
- It adds to the transparency and accessibility of the financial information that the accounts provide
Further information can be found at The Charity Commission for England and Wales
