This guidance explains what a trustees’ annual report is, what the law says it must contain and how you can use it to benefit your charity.
In this guidance we refer to the trustees’ annual report as a TAR.
This guidance is aimed at charity trustees of small to medium sized charities to help them produce a TAR. It may also be useful to people working with or advising charity trustees.
The glossary provides you with further information, definitions and descriptions of some key terms. We’ve highlighted these key terms in bold purple type. Clicking on these terms will take you straight to the glossary.
