Complying with ACNC Legislation
Registering and Reporting
The Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission (ACNC) is the independent national regulator of charities. It was established under an Act of Parliament and it “maintains, protects and enhances public trust and confidence in the sector through increased accountability and transparency, supports and sustains a robust, vibrant, independent and innovative not-for-profit sector and promotes the reduction of unnecessary regulatory obligations on the sector”.
Policy and Procedures - Registering With ACNC
It is mandatory for all charities to register and to submit an Annual Information Statement.
Different types of organisations need to comply with different requirements. Our Policies and Procedures outlines how to apply to register and report for all organisations within the bounds of the Synod.
We have prepared checklists to assist organisations to register and submit.
