This article discloses that most charities in Scotland are unaware of their legal responsibilities to provide copies of their annual reports to anyone who requests for them. The Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland reports that out of 545 charities only 75 obliged to submit their annual reports and accounts. In her report, "An Exploration of Scottish Charities' Governance and Accountability," Lorna Stevenson of the University of Dundee academics recommends that the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator take action to make charities aware.
