The ACNC (Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission) requires all charities to report regularly with Annual Information Statements in Australia.
Currently more than 100 registered non-profits (that have 2 or more outstanding Annual Information Statements) are risking revocation and may lose access to all Commonwealth charity tax concessions, exemptions and other benefits.
The ACNC said:
“Registration with the ACNC is a prerequisite for attaining Commonwealth charity tax concessions such as deductible gift recipient status, income tax exemption, Fringe Benefits Tax rebates, and Goods and Services Tax concessions,” he said.
“Charities that have their status revoked by the ACNC will no longer be able to access Commonwealth charity tax concessions.”
Most of the charities listed above have not responded to multiple attempts by the ACNC to contact them.
Remember, it is a requirement for all Australian Charities to let the ACNC know of any changes to contact information and submit an Annual Information Statement every year.
