Annual Regulatory Returns

What is the Annual Regulatory Return?

The Annual Regulatory Return (ARR) is issued to AHBs in early September. In the ARR, AHBs are asked to provide information that the Regulation Office uses to complete an assessment. This information is as follows:

  • General Information
  • Property Information
  • Governance
  • Financial Viability
  • Performance Management
  • Charter of Commitment Renewal


The ARR is issued as an Excel document or an Online form.

Annual Financial Return (AFR)

Is my organisation required to complete an AFR?

All Tier 3 and a number of Tier 2 AHBs are required to complete an Annual Financial Return (AFR). The Regulation Office works with individual Tier 2 AHBs to determine if they are required to submit the AFR.

If you are unsure if your organisation must complete an AFR, please contact the Regulation Office.
