Charity Reminder To Complete 2013 Annual Information Statement
Tuesday, 18th March 2014 at 8:51 am

Over 17,000 registered charities have now submitted their 2013 Annual Information Statement to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). A further 5,000 are in progress.

Charities that report on a July 1 to June 30 financial year are required to submit their 2013 Annual Information Statement by March 31, 2014.

Charities that report on a calendar year (January 1 to December 31) are also now able to complete their 2013 Annual Information Statement; however the due date for these charities is not until June 30, 2014.

The 2013 Annual Information Statement asks charities about their operations and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Charities don’t need to report any financial information as part of the 2013 Annual Information Statement.

However, around 20 per cent of charities that have submitted their 2013 Annual Information Statement have voluntary filled financial reports.

The information charities provide to the ACNC via the Annual Information Statement is already being published on the ACNC Charity Register. The Register is a free, searchable database of all 60,000 registered charities in Australia.

The Register can be searched by name, ABN, location, beneficiaries, sub-type and registration date.

The Register has proven to be a useful tool for members of the public and donors looking for information about charities in Australia. Since the establishment of the ACNC, the Register has been viewed over 280,000 times.

Charities are encouraged to log on and complete their 2013 Annual Information Statement as soon as possible, to ensure they have an accurate and up to date ACNC Register listing.

Charities can submit their 2013 Annual Information Statement by visiting acnc.gov.au and logging onto the Charity Portal. The username is the charity’s ABN, and the password was mailed to the charity’s address for service in early December 2013.

Charities can find step-by-step guidance on the ACNC website, and those needing a little extra assistance are able to call the ACNC on 13 ACNC (13 22 62) or email advice@acnc.gov.au.
