Ask ACNC 2016

From August, the ACNC will be visiting over 25 regional and metropolitan locations in Australia to talk to charities. The Ask ACNC sessions will provide charities the opportunity to hear directly from one of the ACNC’s Commissioners. The sessions include an update on the work of the ACNC, issues facing the sector and how to meet your ACNC obligations, including the Annual Information Statement. Charities will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the Commissioners during the Q&A session.

As part of the sessions, we will also be providing a free basic financial training session, which includes how to avoid the most common Annual Information Statements errors. This training will be aimed at small charities, but charities of all sizes are welcome to attend.

In most capital cities, Ask ACNC will include a presentation from the Australian Taxation Office.

The sessions

Each Ask ACNC session will run for approximately two hours and will include:

  • An update on the sector
  • Meeting ACNC obligations
  • Future areas of focus
  • A question and answer session
  • Basic financial training with a focus on avoiding common reporting errors

In some locations, state and territory regulators will also provide an update on their work.
