The way charities and other non profit organisations (NPOs) register and submit filings to the Guernsey Registry is changing.
A new online portal launched yesterday (12 Dec 2022) which will make it easier and quicker for charities and NPOs to register and update their details with the Registry. Historically charities and NPOs have had to fill out and submit paper forms to the Registry. The new service can be accessed via the Guernsey Registry website.
The portal will enable charities and NPOs to register, submit annual validations, change their name, contact details, managing official details, and remove themselves from the register online. This will help charities and NPOs comply with the legal requirement to notify the registry within 21 days of any change being made, without any printing or postal delays.
To use the new service charities and NPOs need to nominate authorised persons to administer their account with the Registry. Proof of nomination, e.g. minutes or resolution, can be filed with the registry through the online portal once an account has been created.
Guidance on how to create an account and how to submit filings is available on the Guernsey Registry website.
