Britain

The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society’s financial information has been quite difficult to obtain. However, saying that, in England and Ireland, the Watch Tower Society is required to submit accounts for all monies, whether they are taxable or not. This makes finding financial information quite easy. In England and Wales all the Assembly Halls must register with the Charity Commission for England & Wales.

United States

Getting financial information relating to the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the United States is almost impossible to obtain. This is mostly to do with the fact that the United States only requires religious institutions to report on the taxable portion of their assets. The taxable portion of their assets is any funds, donated or otherwise, that are not used for charitable purposes. For example, any returns on share investments must be reported to Internal Revenue Services (IRS) as these are taxable assets. They do not need to report any funds received by way of donations or through charitable purposes including religious activities.
