Double defaulters

Charities that have failed to submit two Annual Information Statements

Charities that do not submit an Annual Information Statement for two or more years (demonstrating persistent non-compliance) risk having their registration revoked by the ACNC.

In August 2017, the ACNC sent these charities a notice that explained the ACNC’s intention to revoke their charity registration (show cause notice). The notice advised the charities that they have 28 days to get their Annual Information Statements up to date or their charity registration 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 in a variety of ways – reminder letters, emails, newsletters, the fortnightly Commissioner’s Column and social media campaigns.

Of the notices sent to charities in August 2017, 86 charities failed to submit their outstanding Annual Information Statements and, on 14 September 2017, had their ACNC registration revoked.
