All organisations registered by the Charities Regulatory Authority are required to provide information to the Regulator on their activities on an annual basis. The financial information required by the Regulator depends on the gross income of the charity and the type of charity.

Current arrangements provide for the submission of information by unincorporated charities with a gross annual income of more than €100,000. An increase in this limit is not proposed at this time.

Full details in relation to annual reporting requirements are available on the Regulator's website at www.charitiesregulatoryauthority.ie/en/cra/pages/faqs
