Charities update

Transitional options for ACNC registrations finish on 2 December 2013, organisations who wish to opt in as ‘religious’ charities need to make a submission by that date or will be required to apply for charitable registration after that deadline.

For other registered charities with a financial year of 30 June and who have not yet submitted an Annual Information Statement to the ACNC, the latest circular from the regulator states that the deadline for filing the first AIS has been extended to March 2014.

The ACNC continues to post useful governance and administrative tools on its website as well as providing electronic options for reporting organisational changes as well as the AIS.
