The Charity Commission has reported that following its investigation into ‘double defaulting charities’ in September 2013, 33 charities have now complied with their reporting obligations. From November 2013 charities with between £250,000 and £500,000 gross income are being investigated if they have failed to file accounts for 2 years.
The Charity Commission find it difficult to understand why charities comply with Companies House filing regulations but not those of the Charity Commission.
The names of charities being investigated are available on the website.
