The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission says its own data matching and intelligence gathering are adding to the volume of concerns previously attributed to increased public awareness of its regulatory role.

In 2018 concerns were mostly raised by individuals from sources such as the public and charities' own staff (57%). A further 20% came from the ACNC's internal processes - up from 8% in 2017.

Nearly half of concerns fall under the categories private benefit (26%) or poor governance (22%).

The ACNC plans to have a new governance toolkit available on its website in the first half of 2019.
