Public benefit and registration guidance consultation
The Commission's most recent consultation was on our Public benefit statutory guidance and Registering as a charity in Northern Ireland: guidance. This consultation ended on Monday 6 May 2013.
Thank-you to everyone who took the time to contribute to our consultation and share their views on our draft guidance.
All consultation responses we have received will be analysed and collated, with a summary of responses provided on our website in the summer of 2013. The updated public benefit and registration guidance will also be published in the summer, in preparation for compulsory charity registration to begin later in 2013.
