An important announcement from Pobal in regards to registration, and an upcoming information campaign for charities.
On behalf of The Charities Regulatory Authority, Pobal wishes to make you aware of the recently launched simplified registration and annual reporting system for the 8,500 charities that had charitable tax exemption from the Revenue Commissioners (CHY number). The simplified system reduces the amount of information required in order to complete the registration process.
To further engage and to assist charities in meeting their legal obligation, the Charities Regulatory Authority in conjunction with The Wheel and Volunteer Ireland (supported by individual Volunteer Centres) will host a nationwide information campaign at 17 locations across Ireland. These events will provide practical guidance on the process of registration and annual reporting. Beginning on October 20th and continuing until January 2016 it is hoped that participation will involve over 1,000 charities. If your charity is in the process of registration with the Charities Regulatory Authority you are encouraged to attend these useful information sessions.
Further information and the links to register for these events are attached.
If you require any further information you can contact the dedicated Charities Regulatory Authority Customer Service team. They can be contacted on 01 6331500 or via their website https://www.charitiesregulatoryauthority.ie/website/cra/craweb.nsf/page/EventNotices-en
