video tutorial on how to submit your annual monitoring return

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 our screenshots guidance. This is available here.

You can watch the whole video, which lasts 26 minutes, or you can watch the parts which are most useful to your charity. We would advise everyone to watch the introductory section of the video as it provides practical tips and checklists to ensure you can access and are ready to complete your AMR. 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 table below sets out the timings in the video by section, so you can view only those parts most relevant to you:
