Since October 2014, every charity in Ireland is required by law to register with the CRA and to have a charity registration number which identifies an organisation as a charity in the eyes of the law and the public

Your CRA is legally required to appear on all printed/fundraising materials, website, email signatures etc. (We ensure your website includes these elements in the templates for all pages.)

A Registered Charity Number is a number assigned to Charities by the Charities Regulator during the registration process. It is NOT the same as a CHY number. The CHY number is the number allocated by the Revenue Commissioners to charities to whom they have granted tax exemption.

Registration with the Charities Regulator and having a Registered Charity Number is separate to having tax exemption and a CHY number from the Revenue Commissioners.
