HM Attorney General is the registrar and regulator of charities registered in the Isle of Man.
Information concerning the Charities Registration and Regulation Act 2019, which came wholly into force on 1 April 2020, and the Charities Regulations 2020 (“the 2020 Regulations”) can be found in the documents published on this page, including the Charities Bulletins.
Detailed information and guidance concerning the operation of the Charities Register and the regulation of Manx charities will be published here as soon as available. The registration application form and notification form are available on this page in both PDF and Word versions.
Guidance concerning the filing of documents and the holding of AGMs during the Coronavirus pandemic has been published here, as well as a document containing general FAQs. These will be kept under review and updated as necessary.
The process of transferring charity files from the Central Registry to the Attorney General’s Chambers is presently underway. This will enable the information which is required to be held on the Register as per Regulation 4 of the 2020 Regulations to be uploaded so that it can be accessed online. In the meantime, the Index of Charities Registered on or before 31 March 2020 continues to be available for reference. Charities added to, or removed from, the Register on or after 1 April 2020 are included on separate indices published here. Any publically available information concerning a charity which has not yet been uploaded can be obtained by making a written request, preferably by e-mail to email@example.com.
