Welcome to the new register

The new Charitable Trusts Register website was launched on 30 September 2019

If you’ve used this register before, you may notice some changes to the way it looks and operates.

What’s changed…

To use our online services you now need a RealMe® login, and an online services account with the Companies Office.

You’ll also need to confirm that you have the authority to manage your charitable trust board's information on the register. This is a simple one-off process.

If you have a ‘registry key’ already, this will provide instant confirmation. If not, there are a number of other ways to do confirm your authority.

What hasn’t changed...

All the information that ‘lived’ on the old system has been moved over to the new register. This includes all your filed documents and contact details.
