  • OSCR - is your online annual return deadline coming up?

    Created: 12/12/2023
    News/Events Category: Governance


    Each year, every registered charity in Scotland must send OSCR a set of accounts, a trustees’ annual report and an external scrutiny report. Charities submit this information by completing an online annual return using OSCR Online.

    OSCR requires this information within nine months of a charity’s ‘year-end’ date. For example, when a charity has a financial year-end of 31 March its deadline date is 31 December. A significant number of charities have a deadline between December and January. It is clearly marked on a charity’s entry in the Scottish Charity Register if they have missed their deadline.

    If your charity’s deadline is coming up soon, please ensure you are ready to submit your online annual return. Please note, their offices will be closed during the festive period and they will be unable to answer queries during this time.

    If your charity does not submit their online annual return before the deadline, a red box with your late submission date will appear on your Scottish Charity Register entry to highlight this to the public and others, such as funders.
