on-line application form to register a CIO

 

The application form must be completed on-line from the “Start or continue a charity registration application” button at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-register-your-charity-cc21b.

The information required can be gleaned from the Charity Commission’s guidance, but the form does not appear to be available in a downloadable form, so applicants are unable to prepare a draft off-line.

This is an anonymised copy of a form completed on 18 August 2017, which might help applicants to prepare for making an application on-line.  Some of the question are dependent on previous answers, so this example shows some question that are specific to the application and does not show all the question that might be asked.

When the on-line application has been completed, the Charity Commission will respond by email with a PDF copy of the form as completed.
