The Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) is expected to begin in December this year after the legislation to establish it was passed through parliament last week.

One of the first tasks of the ACNC is the delivery of an online register of Australian charities.  Initially only basic information will be available on the ACNC Register, including the name of the charity, its Australian Business Number, the state or territory it is registered in and a link to its entry on the Australian Business Registry.  This information will later include financial and governance information.

If you need assistance in understanding the type of information required to comply with the  ACNC please contact Dr Joanne Redburn on 07 3160 0010.
