Instructions for Amending a Registration

What is an amendment?

An amendment corrects errors or omissions on a recent registration or renewal.  Charities can also use an amendment to replace estimated financial information on an initial registration statement with actual financial figures.


Is there a fee to amend a registration statement?

For a limited time, there is no fee for amendments filed within 30 days of the date that the registration was approved.

If you are outside of that 30-day window, there is a fee for filing an amendment.  See the fee schedule for current fees.


How do I file an amendment?

  • Log in to your account with your user ID and password.  Need help logging in?

  • Click on "File a document".

  • On the Available for Filing page, click on "Amend Registration".

  • Review the information on the Amendments page, then click on "Continue" at the bottom of the page.

  • The next page will show you the steps for the registration statement.

  • Use the "Next" and "Back" buttons to navigate to the information that you need to amend.  Correct any information as necessary.

  • If needed, refer to the line-by-line instructions for registration statements.

What is the difference between amending and renewing a registration?

An amendment can be used to fix errors on a registration statement that was already filed.  A renewal updates the information on record and extends the registration for another year.
