Double defaulters

Charities that have failed to submit two Annual Information Statements

The ACNC has received mail returned unopened from the addresses of a number of registered charities. This indicates that they have changed their address and contact details and not notified us. Because of this, it is unlikely that the charities have received reminders from us to submit Annual Information Statements. They now have failed to submit at least two outstanding Annual Information Statements and, consequently, face having their charity registrations revoked.

All registered charities have an obligation to:

  • Notify the ACNC of changes to contact details. Medium and large charities must do so within 28 days of the change and small charities within 60 days.
  • Submit an Annual Information Statement every year. This online statement is due within six months of the end of the charity's reporting period and is submitted using the ACNC Charity Portal.

More information about all charity obligations can be found on our website at acnc.gov.au/obligations.
