Public Consultation Launched on £20k Threshold for Charities in NI

Department for Communities launches public consultation on a Charity Registration Threshold

The Department for Communities have launched a public consultation to explore the implementation of a £20,000 registration threshold below which charities in Northern Ireland would not be required to register with the Charity Commission or provide an annual report and accounts for publication on its website.

The consultation will take views on the resultant regulatory framework for those charities falling below the threshold and choosing not to register.  It is also seeking views on the future threshold for reporting easements proposed for small charities.

Please click here to view the full consultation which includes relevant information and example case studies to explain rationale for some of the questions.

The Department will also be running a series of consultation events – for more details, please see below.
