Dear Charity Commission for England and Wales,

The Government is rightly concerned that Business CEO's do not currently disclose their benefits.

Charity CEO's do not currently disclose their benefits.
Please advise the legislation that permits this anachronism.

Yours faithfully,

Rex:

There is no legislation covering this, other than the general legislation dealing with an individuals right to privacy and the Data Protection Act 1996 (as amended).

The Government expressed a view, it didn't create any actual legislation making such detailed disclosure a legal requirement.

Salary details are confidential and private information held by an employer - the only disclosure required being that contained in a charity's published accounts, the only current legislation relating to those limited disclosures being the Charities accounting SORP (Statement of Recommended Practice) and (where it applies) the equivalent sections of the Companies Act 2006.

You can access both of these through the www.legislation.gov website, by typing their names into the search facility provided. The Charities SORP and guidance notes are also available on the Commission's website through the search facility.

Unlikely the Commission will do any more than direct you there accordingly (if they are being particularly helpful) - otherwise your request is likely to be refused on the basis of the Commission itself not holding the Companies Act information you are asking for, or in the case of the SORP being already available through its Publications Scheme.

Hope this helps while your waiting.
