Compliance and audits

Important: Do not lend your charity's registration number

A charity is responsible for all receipts issued under its name and registration number. It must account for the corresponding donations on its annual information return and in its books and records. Under no circumstances should a registered charity issue donation receipts on behalf of another organization or lend its registration number to another organization for receipting purposes. A charity that lends its registration number may have its receipting privileges suspended and/or lose its registered status.
