Blue hand held out to receive money

The Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) has revoked the registration of almost 90 charities for failing to submit their Annual Information Statements for two years. Charities who do not submit an Annual Information Statement for two or more years (demonstrating persistent non-compliance) risk their registration being revoked.

These charities are sent an intention to revoke notice (show cause) advising they have 28 days to get all their lodgements up to date or their charity status will be revoked. Charities that have their ACNC registration revoked lose their entitlements to Commonwealth charity tax concessions.

The ACNC reminds charities about submitting the Annual Information Statement using a variety of methods – for example, reminder letters, emails, newsletters, the Commissioner’s Column and social media campaigns.
