The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) has published new guidance aimed at providing charities with practical advice on paying their board members. The guidance – Remunerating Charity Board Members – provides an overview of issues relating to board remuneration, as well as some of the factors charities need to properly consider when making a decision on paying board members for their duties.

Topics covered in the guidance include:

  • What is a payment to a board member?
  • Does the ACNC allow payments to board members?
  • Considerations in deciding to pay board members
  • Should a charity pay its board members?
  • Accountability and transparency
