Charities established before the 16th of October 2014 now have until the 16th of April 2016 to apply to be included in the Register of Charities.
On Friday the 17th of April 2015, the Minister for Justice and Equality, Ms. Frances Fitzgerald, TD, announced a one year extension to the period within which charities established before the 16th of October 2014 must apply to the Charities Regulatory Authority for inclusion in the Register of Charities.
These charities now have until the 16th of April 2016 to make their applications.
The Minister said, “It is important that all charities operating here meet their obligation to register on the new public Register of Charities. This Register is intended to provide much needed additional transparency about our charity sector. I have taken the decision to extend the registration period in consultation with the Charities Regulatory Authority. I encourage any charity that was established before last October and that has not yet begun the registration process to do so now. ”
Applications for inclusion on the Register of Charities can be made through the website of the Charities Regulatory Authority at www.charitiesregulatoryauthority.ie
