This research was undertaken to assess the veracity of financial filings at the Charities Commission by charities which are “small” (expenditure less than ,000 pa) or “medium”-sized (expenditure between ,000 and ,000,000 pa). The research found a very high number of errors in the filings. While some errors and omissions were of a minor nature, 49% of these charities’ filings required corrections.
