As was mentioned above, PCCs are regarded as being charities because of the activities they carry out. Until the Charities Act 2006, PCCs were not required to register with the Charity Commission and comply with the additional reporting obligations that flowed from registration. That has now changed. Each PCCs which has a gross income each year of £100,000 or more is required to register with the Charity Commission. For more information, please see the Charity Commission’s website.
From 1st January 2016 there are two lists of ‘matters not requiring a Faculty’: ‘List A and ‘List B’. ‘List A’ matters are works which the PCC can carry out on their church without a Faculty. 'List B' matters are works which first require the written permission of the Archdeacon.
