Please fill in your details on
this simple form. We will issue you with your user name and
OSCR online is not compulsory. We hope to encourage and persuade
you that our online services are easy and convenient. If you have
not expressed an interest, you will receive a paper form as part of
your normal reporting cycle. This should arrive with you
within a few days of your accounting year end. You should
complete and submit this form along with a copy of your most recent
set of accounts.
The new Annual Return form is much shorter and easier to
complete. We've reduced it from five sides of A4 to only
two. The Supplementary Monitoring Return is largely
unaltered, giving us the more detailed financial information that
we require. But for the majority of charities, submission to
OSCR, even in paper format, is much easier.
The new form will also display your charity's submission
deadline. This will be 9 months from your accounting year
We are hoping that charities will continue to move to our online
services. OSCR Online brings benefits to the sector, to the public,
and to OSCR.
