Can anyone explain to me why there are all these new rules and regulations for charities to follow that are being rather quickly implemented, and yet the One-Stop Charity Portal does not have most functions working yet? Also, why is it that the idea would basically be that there would be one place for you to submit all your documents to so there would be no need to replicate sending the same information to several parties and that isn't working yet either?
We sent all our documentation to the Registry of Societies and the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore months ago and they had to be sent separately. Now it seems that we also have to send it to Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports because of the re-organisation last year. So we have to submit the same documents to not one, but three different bodies. It doesn't seem very one-stop to me.
