ACNC Annual Reporting is a Legal Requirement

Charities have a legal obligation to report to the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission (ACNC). This includes annually through the Annual Information Statement (AIS).

Registered charities are required to submit an Annual Information Statement yearly in order to maintain their charity status.

The consequence of failing to meet your obligations to the ACNC could result in the organisation’s charity registration and taxation endorsements and concessions being revoked.  There are also pecuniary fines that can be imposed for areas of non-compliance.

 

ACNC Annual Information Statement (AIS)

The standard ACNC reporting period is the financial year from 1 July to 30 June.

If your organisation operates on a financial year end of 30 June then you are required to complete and lodge your AIS with the ACNC between 1 July and 31 December each year.

If your organisation operates on a financial year end of 31 December then you are required to complete and lodge your AIS with the ACNC between 1 January and 30 June each year.

For all queries regarding the lodgement of your AIS or any other areas of ACNC compliance please contact the Uniting Resources Employment & Industrial Relations Manager.
