This is a gentle reminder to all village hall and community building management committees that the annual returns (for 2015-16) are due by the 31 January 2017.
However, we have been notified by the Charity Commission that their website has experienced some problems (due to a sudden influx of activity!) and their advice is to make the submissions early in the morning, in the evening or at weekends.
If problems still persist, a Charity can print the screen where the problem occurs and email the copy to the Charity Commission, who will then note that an attempt to meet the deadline has been made.
The phone times have been extended from 09:00 – 12:00 to 10:00 – 16:00 to cover the problems that have been encountered.
