You do not need to complete this form if:

2. You have already notified the Commission of the organisation to be called forward.

All questions are mandatory and must be completed.

1. Please enter your organisation's full name (as stated in its governing document) in the box below.

2. Please enter the name of a contact person for your organisation in the box below. This will be the person the Commission will contact regarding the organisation's application for registration. It is up to your organisation to decide who this person will be. It may be a trustee, an employee or your professional or legal adviser.

3. Please describe your contact person's relationship to the organisation, for example if your contact person is an employee then please specify their role within the organisation.

4. Please provide an address for your organisation. If the organisation does not have a specific address, please enter the address of the contact person for the organisation.

9. Please provide details of any special circumstances which means your registration application may have to begin early.

10. Under section 167 of the Charities Act some organisations are not charities under the law of Northern Ireland, and have their main base outside of Northern Ireland, but operate for charitable purposes in or from Northern Ireland. These organisations, known as section 167 institutions, would be registered as a charity in another jurisdiction, such as Ireland, England and Wales or Scotland, and will not be called forward by the Commission to apply for registration until all organisations which are charities under the law of Northern Ireland have been called forward. If you think your organisation might be a 167 institution please tell us in the box below.
