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.

Information about Scottish Charities should be available from the trustees' report of the charity's annual accounts.
