Charity Accounts and Constitutions

On 1 April 2016 we began to publish charities’ accounts as they were submitted to us, initially for those charities with an annual income of £25,000 or more, and for all SCIOs.

Where a charity publishes its accounts on its website and has supplied us with a link, we have made this available instead. We accept no responsibility for the functionality, accuracy, or content of external websites – if you experience a technical issue with an external link, you should contact the charity direct.

You should also contact the charity for previous years’ accounts and constitutions; or where the charity’s income is under £25,000 and it is not a SCIO. You have the right to the following information under section 23 (1)(a) and (b) of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, from the charity direct:

  • a copy of the charity’s latest statement of account
  • a copy of the charity’s constitution.

You can contact the charity to request this information using the contact details on the charity’s Register entry.
