Annual return filing for fcra

Company Secretary

Dear Members

I have a query regarding Annual return filing FC-3 as per FCRA, 2010.

A trust is there which is registered with FCRA, 1976 as per letter dated 18/04/2011.,

My question is when it will be liable to file its Annual Return FC-3.

will it be liable for filing for  financial year 2010-2011 or 2011-2012.

Kindly throw some light on this.

Thanks in advance for consideration.

Dear Khusboo,

There are 2 questions involved here:


a) Whether the trust received any foreign donation during 2010-11 with prior permission from MHAm if yes then you are required to fill FC-3 for the year 2010-11.
b) If there are no foreign donations then, you need not file them for 2010-11, and in case you have received donation in foreign currency then you have to file it for 2011-12. 
You are further informed that even in case of non receipt of foreign donations you are required to file a nil return. The due date of filing FC-3 every year is 31st December.
Trust is required to file its returns annually and it can file it for 2010-11 and 2011-12.

Thank You Mr. Rajesh

Trust has not received any foreign contribution earlier. and its registration date is considered as per MHA letter dated 18/04/2011. as 18/04/2011.


So i conclude that for 2010-2011 we dont need to file FC-3


Thanks again for your reply


Yes Khusboo, the FC-3 will be filed for the FY 2011-12
