    Our band like many other brass bands are registared chairty. Which you can check on the Charity Registar on the web.

    What has supprised me whilst being nosey on some bands is why they don't send there financial information on time, some bands are two years overdue!! Why don't they remove there charity status and fine them??

    They do eventually...also its not always that the information hasn't been sent in, sometimes its because its been sent in incorrectly, or there are items that are still being reviewed.

    Also, the Charity Commission seem to frequently change the 'rules' on how the accounts are submitted, and this can take a long time to sort out with accountants and stuff.
