Kildare's circa 220 registered charities are being reminded that the deadline by which they must submit their annual report is looming.
The Charities Regulator says all such reports such be lodged with in by October 31st.
Caragh resident, and Regulator, John Farrelly, says “One of the key functions of the Charities Regulator is to increase public trust and confidence in charities,” ... “ Ensuring that your details are up to date on the
Charities Register is crucial when donors and service users come to check the register. This is about transparency and building trust. However, not only will trustees be damaging their charity’s reputation if they fail to report on time, they will also be breaking the law. Filing your annual report on time is a legal requirement and one of the key responsibilities of trustees under the Charities Act.”
