Forces Online has been operating since 26th October 2013, and this led to a Company House/Community Interest Company registration as a Not for Profit, on the 2nd February 2016.

The registration was setup in a way that legally allowed Forces Online to work in every county of the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) including fundraising.

The organisation became Forces Online CIO on the  7th April 2020 following a conversion.  The new registration number is 1188955. Our charitable aim is:
