There are a range of online services available for incorporated societies and charitable trusts. You'll need the registry key to file financial statements (incorporated societies only) or to update an organisation's details.


Registry keys

A registry key provides a secure authentication process for online transactions. A unique registry key is allocated to every registered organisation on incorporation.

If you have lost or forgotten your registry key, use our secure automated online service to retrieve it.
