Commission plans to make registration easier
Registering with the Charity Commission is to become easier thanks to a new streamlined paper application, set to launch next week, and the introduction of online registration early next year.
“In the majority of cases, the information provided on the form will be enough for us to assess the application,” she said.
Online applications also have the potential to “significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to register”, Wells said. They will first be made available to straightforward applications, such as those from organisations that already have an approved governing document from an umbrella organisation. The commission hopes to extend the service to all charities over the course of 2008.
