The trustees are the people who, under the terms of the charity’s governing document (constitution, memorandum and articles etc), are responsible for controlling its management and administration.
The Annual Return form is used to confirm each year the details of those trustees in office at the time it is completed. This ensures a regular update of the trustee details since for most charities the trustee body only changes annually.
For that reason our policy is that we will not normally make changes to the details of existing trustees, remove them or add new trustees between Annual Return submissions. We would though, for example, make an exception to remove a trustee’s name if they are deceased.
Charities can make changes themselves to the trustee details online at any time by using our View/ Amend Charity Details facility. You will need the charity’s password. If you do not have it, you can order one from the ‘Log in’ below.
to change your trustee details online now.
If you cannot access our online service, and there are exceptional reasons for updating the trustee details, you can contact us to advise us of the changes. When adding new trustees you will need to provide full name and address details and dates of birth. For security reasons, any change of trustee details will be subject to a validation procedure.
The names of the trustees are displayed on the Register of Charities unless a dispensation has been granted. No other personal details, such as address or date of birth, are shown.
Changes made to the names of the trustees will normally be reflected on the charity’s’ web Register entry overnight.
