Charity digital filing goes live

Charities will have to file annual returns via the Charity Commission’s new digital account service as legacy system is closed.

The newly-launched My Charity Commission Account service, which most charities have now been invited to sign up for, was launched on 31 July and is designed to improve accessibility and reporting processes for charities.

This means that the current digital filing services will be switched off and all returns will have to be filed via the individual charity’s dedicated account.

The Charity Commission described the move to My Charity Commission Account as charities’ “front door” into the commission, where they will submit any remaining annual returns for 2022 and all annual returns for 2023 onwards, and engage with the regulator’s wider digital services.
