A significant number of Scottish charities have an annual report and accounts submission deadline during this period. If your deadline is between 31 December and 07 January and you are posting paper documentation, we need to have the documents with us by 21 December at the latest - otherwise it will be difficult for us to process them all before New Year. However, if you are completing an annual return in OSCR Online and attaching the required documents at the same time, you have your full 9 months to complete the process.
In either case, we always recommend that you submit the required documentation to us as soon as you can.
The Board and staff at the Scottish Charity Regulator would like to extend the greetings of the festive season to you all and thank everyone who helps contribute to the vision of charities you can trust and that provide public benefit.
