Charities and IPCs are required to inform the Commissioner of Charities (COC) or Sector Administrators (SAs) within 7 days if there is any change in their particulars (e.g. change in Board members, key officers or Authorised Personnel). When there are changes in persons accessing the Portal, charities and IPCs may contact their respective Sector Administrators for assistance to delete obsolete user access accounts. This will help avoid unauthorised access to charities / IPCs' records.
Certain updates such as addition and removal of governing board members and change of name or registered address of the charity or IPC will have to be updated through lodgement with Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Company (ACRA) or Registry of Society (ROS)
Charities and IPCs need to notify COC or SAs for changes in:
Section 27 of the Charities Act disqualifies a person from being a governing board member or key officer of a charity or trustee for a charity if he/she does not fulfill the necessary requirements. It is the responsibility of the Governing Board to ensure that its members and key officers fulfills the requirements. When updating your Charities and IPC profile, you are required to declare whether your board members and key officers have met the requirements under Section 27. If any appointed person is disqualified, the Governing Board should replace the person and inform the COC or SA on the change in governing board members.
