With effect from 30 June 2014, the responsibility for the registration and on-going administration of charities and non-profit organisations (NPOs) was transferred from the Income Tax Department to the Guernsey Registry. Alan Bougourd became Registrar of NPOs as appointed by the Treasury and Resources Department of the States of Guernsey.
The Guernsey Registry now accepts applications for the registration and on-going administration of charities and NPOs. Information regarding charities can be found on the Guernsey Registry website: www.guernseyregistry.com/charities.
Queries regarding specific tax issues relating to charities and NPOs (such as their charitable status for tax purposes, the repayment of tax in respect of charitable donations etc.) should still be directed to the Income Tax Department: www.gov.gg/incometax.
