2,000 More Charities at Risk of Losing Registration
Wednesday, 8th June 2016 at 2:11 pm

The charity regulator has published a list of 2,000 registered charities that are at risk of revocation as “double defaulters” – meaning they have not submitted two Annual Information Statements.

Annual Information Statements

2,000 registered charities have not submitted two Annual Information Statements

Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) said submitting an Annual Information Statement each year was a core obligation for Australian charities that wish to maintain their charity status.

Acting ACNC Commissioner David Locke said that if these charities did not submit their outstanding Annual Information Statements by 30 June, the ACNC would issue them with a notice of intention to revoke their charity status.

“This is not a step that we take lightly, all these organisations have been contacted a number of times over the last two years,” Locke said.

“We believe a number will have wound up and will no longer be operating; however some are likely still operational. Our aim in publishing this list is to provide a further final opportunity for these charities to sort out their reporting.”

In May, the ACNC revoked the registrations of 149 charities for failing to submit their required Annual Information Statements for two years, including a foundation set up by a high-profile Queensland cancer patient.

Over 13,500 charities have had their registration revoked or were removed from the Charity Register as double defaulters since the establishment of the ACNC in December 2012.

In May the ACNC’s latest figures show it registered 220 new charities.
