Using the online dashboard

Using the online dashboard to manage your tasks and unfinished business

The online dashboard for charitable trusts has five sections:

  1. Navigation menu
  2. Quick links
  3. My Businesses
  4. My Incomplete Tasks
  5. My Completed Tasks

The navigation menu gives you quick access to

  • Register Services — Where you can incorporate a charitable trust board.
  • Search — To use the Search Business option to search the Charitable Trusts Register (or one of the other available registers)
  • Accounts — To view invoices loaded for your account or to set up or manage your direct debit (if you have one).
  • Help Centre — For links to some of the help topics we have for charitable trust boards.

Use the shortcuts under 'I would like to...' to begin searching a register, or incorporating a charitable trust board.

My Businesses

At a glance, you can see and select the charitable trust boards for which you're responsible.

My Incomplete Tasks

This section of your dashboard helps you find and manage outstanding tasks and unfinished applications. Instantly see how many tasks you have to complete.


The 'My Incomplete Tasks' tab displays any outstanding tasks belonging to you or your organisation — for example, a registration that needs to be completed.

Selecting a task from the list takes you directly to the relevant process for continuing or completing that task.


'My Incomplete Tasks' also provides you with updates on the progress of your applications. For example, if you have an application that is currently being reviewed by us.

My Completed Tasks

Instantly see how many tasks you've completed. Click on the tab to view a detailed list of your completed tasks.
