FR Registration How to Register as a smaller fundraising charity
The Fundraising Regulator’s voluntary registration system is now open to Charities registered in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Please note: Direct registration is only available to charities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that have a fundraising expenditure of less than £100,000 each year. If you are a charity that spends more than £100,000 on fundraising, you will be asked to pay our voluntary levy in order to register. Please see our separate page on the Levy and how it is calculated here.
Registration for charities requires an annual payment of £50 to be made by PayPal or invoice; payment for commercial businesses and third-parties will be calculated according to annual turnover and will follow the same bandings as the fundraising levy.
Each organisation will receive access details for the registration pack within 7 working days of payment being processed. The registration pack includes the ‘Registered With’ badge in several formats and guidelines for logo usage.
All organisations that register with us are listed on our Public Register.

The Fundraising Regulator will publish on our website the names of any organisations that uses our branding or implies to it is registered with or endorsed by the Fundraising Regulator without our authorisation.
We will also report these organisations to other authorities and regulators who have a legitimate interest in ensuring best practice in fundraising.
The Fundraising Regulator’s registration system came into operation in September 2016. An 18 month grace period to December 2017 was established for use of old FRSB branded materials to allow for the process of transition and to use up pre-printed resources.
The grace period has now passed and fundraisers should no longer use materials if it contains the FRSB logo/branding.
By registering with the Fundraising Regulator, organisations agree to the commitment made to donors and the public as set out in the Fundraising Promise. Read the full document here.
