We have received an update on the transitional arrangements for the use of old and new forms of application for registration from the Charity Commission. The updated timetable is as follows:

  • The new form has been available for use since 14 March and the expectation is that all new applications will now be made using this form.
  • The old form will cease to be available to begin fresh applications from this Thursday 14 April.
  • Applications which are begun using this form before it is withdrawn will continue to be available to edit and submit, until 14 July. At that point applicants will no longer be able to access these applications.

So, any applications you are in the course of preparing on the old form must be started in the next 2 days.
