 Deregistration

Section 31 of the Charities Act 2005 says that a charity is deregistered as a charitable entity if it is removed from the Charities Register.

A registered charitable entity may be removed from the Register (deregistered) for various reasons. It may choose to be taken off the Register, or the Charities Commission may decide to deregister it.

A charity may ask to be deregistered at any time and for any reason. Perhaps the charity is winding-up and will cease to exist, or it no longer meets the requirements of the Charities Act – for example, it has changed its rules to include purposes that are not exclusively charitable. Or it simply no longer wants to be on the Register.

For more information on charitable purpose, go to the Charitable purpose page. You can view the list of deregistered charities on the published list below.
