Charity Register Statistics (England and Wales)

Facts and figures from the Charity Commission's register of charities.

The figures are based on the annual gross income reported by charities in their annual returns. Annual gross income differs from the total incoming resources reported in the Statement of Financial Activities (SoFA) prepared by charities (more information).

Because of the change of definition in gross income, income figures from 2009 onwards will not be directly comparable to the historic figures shown. During the transition the figures will be based on a mix of the old and new definitions.

At an aggregate level the total income figures for all registered charities inevitably includes an element of double counting. Double counting arises when resources are transferred between charities and counted in both.
