Charity Commission opposes government over regulation plans for large charities

From Civil Society News:

The Charity Commission has pressed the government to drop plans for imposing further regulations on large charities.

The Commission said that new financial reporting rules, currently being considered by ministers, are ill-suited to charities and would impose an “extensive additional regulatory burden and financial cost on the sector”.

In its official response to a consultation on the reforms, seen by Civil Society News, the Commission urged the government to rethink the plans, which would be applied to charities with incomes over £100m a year.
