Annual monitoring return (AMR) tutorial video
Welcome to the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland’s video tutorial on how to submit your annual monitoring return. This provides an overview of the online annual monitoring return submission process.
It may be useful to watch the video with a copy of the screenshots guidance, which is available below.
You can watch the whole video, which lasts 26 minutes, or you can watch the parts which are most useful to your charity. The Commission would advise everyone to watch the introductory section of the video as it provides practical tips and checklists to ensure you can access your AMR and have all the necessary information to complete it.
You should also view all sections that are mandatory for you. If, however, you are a small charity, and are not required to complete Part B and C of the form, you may wish to skip these parts of the video. The online tutorial provides timings at the end of each section to enable you to do this.
The Commission has also produced a Public benefit toolkit - reporting public benefit in the trustees annual report, designed to assist charity trustees, management committees and charity boards to report on how their charity has met the public benefit requirement.
