Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

A previous FOI - FOI2017/01546 - asked HMRC to identify fields in the database of recognised charities/others and HMRC supplied screen shots of the application form demonstrating the fields captured.

With reference to those screen shots, I should be grateful for a copy of the data held in the following fields for all the charities in the database recognised for tax purposes, provided as electronic data in CSV or Excel format:

Full name of charity
Operating name of charity
What are your charity's charitable objectives?
How do these things benefit the public?
Who is your charity's regulator?
Your charity's registration number
Company registration number

In a modern system it should be possible to produce a report and download this information in a matter of minutes, the CSV or Excel formats are basic and do not pose an unreasonable burden for HMRC.

Should you have any questions that would help you fulfill this request then don't hesitate to contact me through this service.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Delahunty

Dear Mr Delahunty,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Acknowledgement

Thank you for your communication of 16th March which has been passed to
HMRC's Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need
to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either
comply with HMRC's obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we
think it's an enquiry that we don't need to address under the terms of the
Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it
on to a more appropriate part of the Depa rtment for answer.

As you will appreciate, the coronavirus pandemic has provided
unprecedented challenges for Government Departments including HMRC. Over
the coming weeks our priorities are to provide critical existing and new
Public Services for Government to support customers during this difficult
time. As a result, resources may be diverted away from usual compliance or
information rights work. HMRC aims to respond to all FOIA Requests within
20 working days. If for whatever reason this timescale cannot be complied
with HMRC will, where possible, write to you explaining the reason for the
delay and providing an estimated time for response.

Yours sincerely

HMRC Freedom of Information Act Team
