OSCR – links to charity account

OSCR – links to charity account

I have been a bit slow on the uptake, but I recently noticed that The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) website now includes a link to charity accounts, where it is provided by the charity. The link to charity accounts was introduced in 2015 as part of the annual return submission process. There are currently 1,332 charities with a published link. It’s not possible to search for charities with a link on the Scottish Charity Register at the moment, but it is something OSCR will consider adding to the Charity Register Download in future. If you think that is a good idea, be sure to let them know.

When I wrote to OSCR asking them about this feature, they replied with a spreadsheet showing the charities providing the link.
