Govt gives update on delinquent charities

Some of the Island's delinquent charities have complied with a Government request for outstanding financial statements, according to Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy.

Fourteen of the Island's registered charities have been deemed dormant, and will be cancelled; 13 have requested extensions to finalise their statements.

Mr Fahy said that out of 50 registered charities whose financial statements hadn't been given in since 2010, 23 had complied with a July 31 deadline to send their accounts to the Registry General.

Added Mr Fahy: “Fourteen charities which have been inactive for a while will have their registrations cancelled.”

Financial statements are due six months after the financial year-end, he said.
