FAQs

Do you have any questions about BK Plus and our services? You may be able to find the answer to your question by looking at some of our frequently asked questions.

What specific financial information should our charity maintain for compliance and transparency?

Every charity must keep detailed accounting records and prepare annual accounts to comply with regulatory standards. These records should include a trustees’ annual report that describes the charity’s activities and financial performance over the year, helping to demonstrate accountability and transparency to the public and funding bodies.

What are the reporting obligations for a small charity with a lower annual income?

Charities with an annual income above £5,000 are required to register with the Charity Commission. Additionally, charities with an annual income over £10,000 must submit an annual return which includes their annual accounts and trustees’ annual report. This submission needs to be completed within ten months of the end of your financial year.

Our charity’s annual income is nearing £100,000; what additional financial reporting will this necessitate?

When a charity’s annual income reaches between £25,000 and £250,000, it must have its accounts independently examined or audited, depending on the specifics of the income and assets. This is a part of the annual return process, and detailed documentation must be submitted to the Charity Commission within ten months of the end of the financial year.

As our charity evolves, how does the financial reporting change if we transition from an unincorporated entity to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)?

Transitioning to a CIO involves your charity becoming a separate legal entity, which alters financial reporting requirements significantly. As a CIO, your charity must prepare its accounts in line with the regulations applicable to incorporated entities and comply with the Charity SORP. This change requires more detailed reporting on governance and financial management to ensure transparency and compliance with charity law.
