Details linked to charity registration

The request was successful.

Dear Charity Commission for Northern Ireland,

Could you please clarify the following:

1. Consequent to the Charity legislation enacted in 2008, is there a legal obligation on all Charities to register an interest to apply for a listing on the Charity Register.
2. Who is legally required to register the specific charity
3. In the event that a Charity fails to register, are they legally entitled to continue operating as a Charity, and what is the cut-off date
4. Only one Air Training Corps Charity appears on the deemed list; what happens with regard to the other similar Squadron Charities. (16 or more in total)
5. What action is the Commission for NI entitled to take, where there is a failure to adhere to the registration process, which began in 2013.
6. What process was followed by the Commission to alert Charities to the implications of the Charities Act (NI) 2008.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Brown
