Submission Deadline Looms on ACNC Future
Thursday, 3rd April 2014 at 10:34 am

Not for Profits have just four weeks to make a submission to the Senate inquiry into the Legislation to repeal the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

Submissions are due by May 2, 2014.

The bill proposes to repeal the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012, thereby abolishing the regulator and proposes transitional arrangements relating to a successor agency of the ACNC.

Legislation to abolish the ACNC under the Federal Government Repeal omnibus was referred to the Economics Legislation Committee for inquiry on the last sitting day of Federal Parliament in March.

The move, seen as giving the Not for Profit a final lifeline in it’s attempt to save the regulator, was decided by the Selection of Bills Committee and is not expected to report back to Parliament until June 16, 2014.

The explanatory note produced by the Committee says the reason the Bill has been referred is “to thoroughly consider the impacts on Australia’s charitable sector of the repeal of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and ensure adequate stakeholder consultation”.

The explanatory note says that possible submissions and evidence to the inquiry would come from the Community Council for Australia, Australian Council of Social Services, Volunteering Australia, Catholic Social Services, Church Communities Australia, Philanthropy Australia, Independent Schools Council of Australia, the Australian Conservation Foundation and the Australian Council for International Development.

It will also take evidence from the ACNC itself and the Department of Social Services.

Information about the Bill and how to upload a submission can be found here.

The Senate Standing Committees on Economics can be contacted by phone on 0 2 6277 3540 or via email at economics.sen@aph.gov.au
