Section 1 – Organisation details

Australian Business Number (ABN) details

Organisations must have an ABN to register as a charity with the ACNC. This is an 11- digit number issued by the Australian Business Register (ABR). If you don’t know the organisation’s ABN, check it on the ABN Lookup. If the organisation doesn't have an ABN, apply for one online with Australian Business Register.

Before applying to register with the ACNC, check the organisation’s ABN details on the ABR to ensure it:

  • shows the same name that appears on the organisation’s governing document (its constitution, rules, or trust deed),
  • has the correct ‘entity type’ for the organisation’s legal structure, and
  • was registered on or before the date that you want the charity registration to start.

Attention - Important information!There are some ABR entity types that are ineligible for charity registration. Common examples are individuals or sole traders, partnerships or government entities. Contact us if you are unsure about the organisation’s ABN details before you apply to register.

The table below sets out the types of organisations that can apply to be registered as charities and the correct ABR entity type for each legal structure.

Structure of organisation applying Correct ABR entity type
ACT incorporated association
NSW incorporated association
NT incorporated association
SA incorporated association
QLD incorporated association
TAS incorporated association
VIC incorporated association
WA incorporated association
Organisation incorporated under legislation
Other Incorporated Entity
Trust (including testamentary trust created in a Will) Discretionary Investment Trust OR
Fixed Trust (depending on structure of trust)
Australian Public Company (does not have Pty in its name) Australian Public Company
Australian Private Company (has Pty in its name) Australian Private Company
Unincorporated Association Other Unincorporated Entity
Co-operative Co-operative

Attention - Important information! If there is an error in the organisation’s ABN details (for example the name or entity type is incorrect), contact the ABR to have them corrected. Depending on the nature of the correction, you may have to apply for a new ABN.

Organisation name

This is the organisation's formal name as it appears on its governing document (its constitution, rules, or trust deed), or, if established, for example, by an Act of Parliament, its constituting legislation.

The name should also be the same as the name that is:

  • registered with other regulatory bodies (for example, ASIC, Fair Trading, Consumer Affairs, or ORIC) and
  • registered with the Australian Business Register (ABR).

Legal Name Requirements:

  • Incorporated associations: Must show ‘Incorporated’ or ‘Inc’ in the legal name.
  • ASIC registered public companies: Must show ‘Limited’ or ‘Ltd’ in the legal name unless ASIC has approved the omission.
  • ASIC registered private companies: Must show ‘Pty Ltd’ in the legal name.
  • ATSI corporations registered with ORIC: Must show the words Aboriginal corporation, Torres Strait Islander corporation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporation, Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal corporation, or Indigenous corporation in the legal name.
  • Trusts should use the name shown in the Deed of Trust (for example: The XYZ Charitable Trust). Do not use the trustee’s name or the phrase “As Trustee for…”.

Attention - Important information!To avoid confusion, the ACNC Charity Register does not allow two different charities to be registered with the same or similar names.

Other names

Include any other names the organisation is known by (for example, trading names, business names, abbreviations or acronyms). Add as many other names as you need to. These other names will appear on the ACNC Charity Register in addition to the organisation’s legal name.

Address For Service

The Address For Service is the primary address to which the ACNC will send an organisation all correspondence once it is registered as a charity.

Provide the ACNC with an email address and/or a postal address in Australia for the organisation’s Address For Service.

These will be published on the ACNC Charity Register, so we suggest you use the organisation’s email address (a generic one, such as info@charity.org.au) rather than a personal email address.

If you provide an email address as the Address For Service, we will use this as the main way to contact the organisation.

If the organisation is registered with ASIC, you must also provide a physical address. This cannot be a post office box.

Read more in our fact sheet about the Address For Service.

Primary contact for the organisation after it is registered

This is the person that will be the main contact for the ACNC once the organisation is registered. This person’s details will not be published on the ACNC Charity Register. These details are for ACNC internal use only.

Please include the area code in any fixed phone numbers. And if it is an overseas number, include the country code with a plus sign (for example, +42 3 234 567 33).

Attention - Important information! If you want to provide a contact person specifically for the application period, you will have a chance to do so later.

Other organisation details

Provide the organisation’s physical address, contact phone number for business hours and website address here. These details will be published on the ACNC Charity Register. (In limited circumstances, the ACNC can approve requests to withhold certain details from the Charity Register. Read more about withholding information at acnc.gov.au/withhold.)

[Back to top]

Section 2 - Governing document

This is the document that sets out the organisation's objects or purposes, its rules, and the processes for the way it is managed. Governing documents are commonly known as constitutions, rules, articles, or trust deeds. Read more about governing documents at acnc.gov.au/governingdocument.

Before submitting an application, ensure that the organisation’s governing document contains the rules and processes by which it will operate, and in particular::

  • the organisation’s charitable purpose or purposes.
  • Statements that show the organisation’s not-for-profit character. These are usually clauses in the governing document that state how the organisation’s income and assets will be used and what happens to the income and assets once the organisation closes down. Read examples of these clauses at acnc.gov.au/notforprofit. (Some organisations can show their not-for-profit character through their set-up under certain laws, such as legislation for incorporated associations or trust law.)

Some organisations may have been set up by an Act of Parliament, Canon law, Letters Patent or Royal Charter. In these cases, if the organisation does not have a governing document as such, provide the title of the establishing legislation instead.

Attention - Important information! If you are unsure of how your organisation was established and do not have any written rules or governing legislation, please contact us on 13 22 62 (13 ACNC) or at advice@acnc.gov.au to check whether you are eligible to apply.

Upload a copy of the organisation’s governing document. Please check that:

  • it includes the organisation’s legal name
  • it is the correct document for the type of entity
  • it contains the necessary clauses noted above
  • it is the final version (not a draft), and
  • it is free of any drafting amendments.

Be careful to not include unrelated documents such as an incorporation certificate or paperwork, meeting minutes, or other personal documents.

In the unlikely case that an organisation has more than two governing documents (most will have only one), please send the additional documents to registration@acnc.gov.au with the organisation’s ABN and the words ‘Additional governing documents’ in the subject header.

Once registered, the organisation’s governing document will be published on the ACNC Charity Register.

[Back to top]

Section 3 – Charity subtype(s) & beneficiaries

Date of establishment

The organisation's date of establishment is:

  • for incorporated entities, the date of incorporation
  • for trusts and other unincorporated entities, the date that the governing document (constitution, rules or trust deed) was first signed
  • for entities established under legislation, the date this legislation was enacted.

Once registered, the organisation’s date of establishment is published on the ACNC Charity Register.

Charity subtypes

The organisation’s charitable ‘purpose’ is what it has been set up to achieve. Some people also refer to this as the mission.

The ACNC registers organisations under one or more charity ‘subtypes’. These subtypes are categories that reflect an organisation’s charitable purposes.

The fourteen subtypes are:

  • advancing health
  • advancing education
  • advancing social or public welfare
  • advancing religion
  • advancing culture
  • promoting reconciliation, mutual respect and tolerance between groups of individuals that are in Australia
  • promoting or protecting human rights
  • advancing the security or safety of Australia or the Australian public
  • preventing or relieving the suffering of animals
  • advancing the natural environment
  • advancing public debate
  • other similar purposes ‘beneficial to the general public’ (a general category used only for purposes not covered by the other subtypes)
  • public benevolent institution
  • health promotion charity

Read more about charitable purpose to work out the relevant charity subtypes for your organisation at acnc.gov.au/charitablepurpose

Attention - Important information!Only select subtypes that match the organisation’s purposes.

Organisations must provide evidence that they fit the charity subtypes that they apply for here. 

If the organisation does not actively work towards a particular subtype, or if the subtype it is not reflected in the objects or purposes in the organisation’s governing document, do not apply for registration as that subtype.

  • If the organisation may fit a subtype in future, but does not actively work towards it now, it can apply for registration under that subtype at a later date.
  • The subtype ‘Purposes beneficial to the general public and analogous to other charitable purposes’ is meant to cover charitable purposes that do not fit within the other subtypes. If the organisation’s purposes fall within another subtype, do not select this one. Choosing inappropriate subtypes will delay your registration application.

Some purposes are not charitable

Some purposes may benefit the community, but do not fit the legal meaning of charity. For example, an organisation may not fit the legal meaning of charity if it is a:

  • social club – unless its main purpose is charitable and the club’s social activities are simply the way it achieves its charitable purpose. For example, helping people who are socially isolated or disadvantaged.
  • sporting and recreational organisation – unless its main purpose is charitable and sport or recreational activities are simply the means by which the organisation achieves its charitable purpose. For example, providing sporting activities for people with disabilities or the elderly.
  • professional or trade group – unless its main purpose is charitable. For example, advancing education.

The following purposes are disqualified from being charitable:

  • engaging in, or promoting activities that are unlawful or contrary to public policy, and
  • promoting or opposing a political party or a candidate for political office.

If the organisation has a purpose that you think may not be charitable, or may be disqualified from being charitable, and you’d like to discuss eligibility before applying, please contact us on 13 22 62 (13 ACNC) or at advice@acnc.gov.au.

Activities

Describe how the organisation's activities advance the charity subtype. Please describe the activities of the organisation clearly – do not simply restate the objects or purposes as stated in the governing document.

Beneficiaries

Identify the beneficiaries of your charity. These are the people or groups it helps or will help by its main activities. For example:

  • A charity that helps people with cancer could say its beneficiaries are 'people with chronic or terminal illness'.
  • A charity that provides accommodation for people experiencing homelessness could say its beneficiaries are 'people at risk of homelessness or the homeless'.

Please provide detailed information to help us understand who the organisation is trying to help.

What you write here will not appear on the ACNC Charity Register.

Section 4 - Public Benevolent Institution or Health Promotion Charity

Two charity subtypes in particular have specific requirements:

  • Public Benevolent Institution
  • Institution whose principal activity is to promote the prevention or control of diseases in people (Health Promotion Charity)

Before applying for registration as these subtypes, read the fact sheets and Commissioner Interpretation Statements on both to fully understand the eligibility requirements.

Make sure you download and complete the PBI or HPC schedule and attach it to the application if you apply for these subtypes.

Section 5 - Operating locations

Select each state or territory or overseas location in which the organisation conducts (or plans to conduct) activities.

(You can select multiple overseas locations in the drop-down list by holding the CTRL button on your keyboard as you click on the locations.)

Please answer this question carefully as the selections will be published on the ACNC Charity Register and may be used to identify the organisation’s regulatory requirements with some states and territories.

Operating overseas

We consider that organisations operate overseas if they do any of the following:

  • Send money overseas
  • Send other assets overseas ((e.g. supplies, equipment or other materials)
  • Conduct activities overseas (e.g. provide medical assistance, build housing, run education programmes)
  • Have involvement in other types of overseas projects (e.g. sponsoring a child overseas, supporting another Australia-based charity's overseas project)

Attention - Important information! If you select that the organisation operates overseas, you will need to complete a separate questionnaire that asks for information about the way the organisation manages its overseas operations, funds and activities. The questionnaire is available via a link in the confirmation email you receive after submitting the main application form.

Collecting (Fundraising) in South Australia

If you select South Australia you will have the opportunity to notify Consumer and Business Services (CBS) of the organisation’s intention to collect (fundraise) in that state via the ACNC Charity Portal once the organisation is registered. Find out more about fundraising in South Australia at acnc.gov.au/SA.

Section 6 - Responsible Persons

Responsible Persons are the people on the organisation’s governing body responsible for the decisions that the organisation makes. The Responsible Persons are commonly of the organisation’s board, committee, trustees or directors. Find out more about Responsible Persons.

You must:

  • tell us how many Responsible Persons the organisation has, and
  • create a new record for each Responsible Person.

To add more Responsible Persons, select 'Save and New'. When you have entered all the Responsible Persons select 'Save'.Check the governing document of the organisation to see how many Responsible Persons the organisation is supposed to have.

Attention - Important information! ! This question is not simply asking for a contact person. It is asking for the details of all the Responsible Persons. If you do not provide us with a record for each Responsible Person or if the organisation does not have the minimum number of Responsible Persons as required in its governing document, we cannot process your application.

Details of Responsible Persons

Include the following information for each Responsible Person:

  • full name
  • date of birth (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • other names known by (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • residential address (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • business hours phone number (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • mobile number (we will only use this if we are unable to contact you on the business hours number) (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • gender (this is not published on the ACNC Charity Register)
  • if they are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin (this is optional and will not be published; the information will help us continue to improve our services for charities)
  • main language spoken at home (this is optional and will not be published; the information will help us continue to improve our services for charities)
  • position in the organisation (for example, committee member, treasurer, director).

Withholding details of Responsible Persons from the ACNC Charity Register

You can apply to have certain details withheld from publication on the Charity Register, but we can only approve them in limited circumstances.

Attention - Important information! Only the name and position of each Responsible Person are published on the ACNC Charity Register. Other Responsible Persons’ details are not published, so do not apply to have them withheld.

If you want to apply to have the details of the Responsible Persons withheld from the Charity Register, select ‘Yes’ and then choose a reason from the drop-down list. We can only withhold information for the limited reasons given in the list. This request alone does not mean that the details will be withheld from the Charity Register. It is subject to assessment and may be refused.

You can request to withhold details of the organisation from publication on the ACNC Charity Register in section 11 of the application form.

Read more about withholding information from the Charity Register acnc.gov.au/withhold.

Suitability and duties of Responsible Persons

Responsible Persons have responsibilities to the organisation, as well as to the ACNC, and must be ‘suitable’. This is set out in the ACNC Act and the ACNC Governance Standards (in particular, Standards 4 and 5).

Attention - Important information! Confirm that you have searched the ASIC Register of Banned or Disqualified Persons to ensure that each person is not disqualified from acting as a Responsible Person for the organisation.

[Back to top]

Section 7 - Financial information

The details you provide should be based on the financial year that the organisation uses. For most organisations, the financial year is the 12-month period ending 30 June, but some organisations use a different period.

Provide the following information:

  • The gross income and expenditure for the previous financial year
  • The estimated gross income for the current financial year
  • The organisation’s current source of funds(list all sources of revenue)
  • The organisation’s expected sources of revenue in the future

If the amount is zero (for example, if the organisation has not started), enter '0'. Otherwise enter only full dollar amounts (no cents) without spaces or commas (i.e. 10000 rather than 10,000 or 10 000) or the dollar sign.

Financial reporting period

If the organisation’s financial year does not end on 30 June, select ‘no’ at this question and request a ‘substituted accounting period’.

Provide the following information for the request:

  • the end date of the organisation’s financial year, and
  • the reason the organisation wants to use this reporting period. (For example, the organisation may have been reporting on a calendar year since it started and it wants to continue to do so.)

We will consider the reason, and notify the organisation of the outcome.

Section 8 - Endorsement for tax concessions

Use the ACNC’s Charity Registration application to apply for tax concessions from the ATO – you don't need to fill out a separate form for the ATO. The ACNC will pass this section of the application to the ATO for assessment. If the ATO requires any additional information, they will contact the organisation directly.

Indicate if your organisation is seeking endorsement for:

  • income tax exemptions
  • fringe benefits tax exemptions or rebates (exemption or rebate capped at $30 000) concessions, and
  • goods and services tax (GST) concessions.

Select the date from which the organisation would like the tax concessions to apply.

If the date from which the organisation would like the tax concessions to apply is more than one year earlier than the date on which the charity application is submitted, you will need to complete a separate short questionnaire. The questionnaire asks questions about the operations and activities of the organisation during the backdating period. It is available via a link in the confirmation email you receive after submitting the main application form.

Read our information aboutcharity tax concessions at acnc.gov.au/taxconcessions, and visit the ATO website at ato.gov.au/non-profit for more details about tax concessions for non-profit organisations

Section 9 - Endorsement as a deductible gift recipient (DGR)

This information is collected for the ATO and will be provided to the ATO (and other Registers, if applicable).

There are currently more than 40 categories of DGR. Some DGR categories need organisations to have been registered with the ACNC as charities before they can apply for DGR endorsement with the ATO. Read more about DGRs and the ACNC at acnc.gov.au/DGR.

To find out whether the organisation meets the requirements to be endorsed as a DGR, read the ATO’s guidance on DGR endorsement. You can review the requirements for the relevant DGR item you are seeking in the ATO's DGR table (see below).

Attention - Important information! The ACNC will pass on the information you provide in this section to the ATO so it decide whether the organisation is eligible for DGR endorsement.

DGR endorsement requirements

For DGR endorsement, an organisation must:

  • have its own ABN
  • fall within a general DGR category (as set out in the ATO’s DGR table) or have a fund or institution that is part of the organisation which falls within a general DGR category
  • have acceptable rules for transferring surplus gifts and deductible contributions when it winds up or if its DGR endorsement is revoked. An organisation can do this by:
    • having a DGR revocation clause in its governing document (constitution, rules or trust deed), or
    • showing that it is required to do this by law.
  • maintain a gift fund (if seeking endorsement for the operation of a fund or institution), and
  • generally, is established and operated in Australia.

Completing the form

If the organisation is seeking endorsement as a DGR, you will need to indicate in the registration application form:

  • that the organisation (or part) is established and operated in Australia
  • that the endorsement is for:
    • the organisation as a whole ('whole DGR'), or
    • a fund, authority or institution that the organisation owns or includes ('part DGR')
  • the DGR item or items (and the item number or numbers listed in the ATO DGR table) for which the organisation (or part thereof) is applying (you may need to attach the relevant schedule later)
  • if the organisation seeks endorsement with a particular DGR Register.

Applying for endorsement as a whole DGR

For DGR endorsement for the whole organisation (rather than just a part), you will need to confirm that the organisation has a revocation clause in its governing document and copy that clause (including the clause number) into the form.

The clause must state that if the organisation is wound up or its DGR endorsement is revoked, then all the remaining gifts, deductible contributions and money received (as part of such gifts and contributions) will be transferred to another charitable DGR-endorsed entity with similar objects..

For more, read the ATO’s information on endorsement as a whole.

Applying for endorsement as a part DGR 

For DGR endorsement for a fund or institution that the organisation owns or operates (‘part DGR endorsement’), you will need to confirm that the gift fund the organisation maintains has a revocation clause in its governing document and copy that clause (including the clause number) into the form.

If the organisation is seeking part DGR endorsement, you will need to:

  • provide the legal name of the organisation, fund, authority or institution
  • provide the business address of the fund, authority or institution, if it is different to the organisation's address
  • tell us if the fund, authority or institution has its own governing document (a constitution, rules or deed) and, if so, upload it.
  • tell us if the organisation maintains a gift fund for the principal purpose of the fund, authority or institution. If so:
    • tell us if all gifts and deductible contributions and related income are deposited into that fund, and if the fund received any other money or property
    • indicate (in the relevant governing document) if there is a gift fund revocation clause that states that any remaining surplus assets of a gift fund will be transferred to another DGR, and, if so, copy the clause into the text box

Note, an organisation seeking part DGR endorsement for a fund, authority or institution must maintain a gift fund. The rules or governing document should provide evidence that there is a gift fund, and set out its name, purpose and operations. For more information please refer to the ATO's gift fund requirements.

Requirements for different DGR items

Different DGR items have different requirements. When you choose a particular item, you will be asked questions to determine the organisation’s eligibility for that type. Please see the ATO’s list of DGR types to read the requirements for each DGR type.

Requirements for DGR Registers

There are government Registers for certain types of organisations that are eligible for DGR endorsement, including:

If the organisation, as part of the requirements of the DGR item it has applied for, needs to be included on one of these Registers, please complete the related questions. This will help you determine if the organisation is eligible to apply for DGR endorsement in this category and will provide information on how to apply to the relevant Register.

DGR Item schedules

Attention - Important information! Save your application now. If you have applied for one of the following DGR items, you will need to download, complete and then upload the relevant DGR schedule before you continue.

Section 12 - Declaration

ACNC Governance Standards

Charities must meet a set of ACNC Governance Standards to be registered and remain registered with the ACNC. The Governance Standards are a set of core, minimum standards that cover the way charities are run (including their processes, activities and relationships) – their governance.

The ACNC Governance Standards require charities to remain charitable, operate lawfully, and be run in an accountable and responsible way. They help charities remain trusted by the public and continue to do their charitable work. Because the Governance Standards are a set of high-level principles, not precise rules, each charity must decide how it will comply with them.

By signing the declaration at the end of this form you are confirming that the organisation complies with the ACNC’s Governance Standards from the date from which you requested the organisation be registered or 1 July 2013 (the date that the Governance Standards came into force), whichever is later.

(If the organisation’s governing rules prevent compliance with the Governance Standards prior to 1 July 2017, your signing this declaration is confirmation that the organisation complied with the Governance Standards as far as was possible from 1 July 2013 to 1 July 2017.)

Declaration

This section also asks for a declaration that the information that you have provided on this application is true and correct.

This form must be signed by one of the following:

  • a Responsible Person (such as a board or committee member or trustee)
  • an authorised person who holds a position in the organisation that gives them authority to sign (such as a CEO or CFO)
  • an agent authorised by the organisation to sign this form (such as a lawyer or an accountant), or
  • a charity registered with the ACNC (lodging entity) that can legally change the governing rules of the organisation applying for registration.

Make sure the person who signs this declaration is authorised to do so.

See more information on who can sign, how to sign electronic forms and agent authorisations.

Attention - Important information! Make sure you click the 'Submit' button to submit your application.

Remember, if you have any questions about completing the form, please contact us on 13 22 62 (13 ACNC) on weekdays between 9.00 am and 6.00 pm AEST or at advice@acnc.gov.au.
