Before giving your return please read our information about charitable street collections.
How to supply a return
Once you've carried out the street collection you'll need to give us a return giving an account of the monies raised.
You'll need to do this within one month of the collection.
You can give your return online. We'll need to know:
- the name of the charity or fund which is to benefit
- the place of collection
- the proceeds of collection
- expenses and application of proceeds
An accountant will need to give a certificate to confirm that the return is a true account of the collection.
There is no cost for giving the return.

You'll need to know how much money was raised and how much any expenses came to.
You don't need to do anything else but please do email or telephone us if you have any questions about your return.
If you want to carry out another collection you will need to apply for another permit.
You can fill in a paper version of the return form and send it to us in the post or bring it into our office within 28 days of the collection.
If you want to come in to our offices and speak to a licensing officer then please telephone first to make sure that someone is available.
