Excepted charities now have until 2014 to register with Charity Commission
Excepted charities are those which, although remaining under the jurisdiction of the Charity Commission, need not register with the Charity Commission if they fall within one of the following three categories:
- Income of less than £5,000.
- Registered places of worship.
- Special regulations.
This means that armed forces charitable funds, scout and guide groups, and charities connected with some Christian churches that were aiming to meet the 1 October 2012 deadline now have until 31 March 2014 to register.
This is the fourth extension to the deadline since the regulations were first included in the Charities Act 1993.
