You and the trustees may decide it is time to close your charity. This could be due to a number of factors, for example:
- a loss or reduction in funds
- a lack of members
- your charity is becoming a company
If your charity is registered, you must let us know you are going to close it so we can remove it from the register of charities. You should also read your charity’s governing document to see if it contains a 'dissolution clause'; special instructions for what you should do to close your charity. Read our guidance on closing or merging a charity for more information.
Rather than closing your charity, you may want to merge with another charity which carries out similar objects so you can still meet your users’ needs.
