ACNC Basics information sessions

As part of the ACNC’s ongoing commitment to supporting charities through community education, 32 information sessions were provided across Australia in 2013. The sessions were called ACNC Basics and focused on the key information charities needed to know to meet their obligations and maintain their registration with the ACNC.

The sessions

ACNC Basics ran for three hours and covered:

  • why the ACNC was set up
  • how the ACNC affects your charity
  • the benefits of registering your charity, and
  • the ongoing obligations of registered charities.

Educational videos

See also our ACNC educational videos on:

  • maintaining registration – information for registered charities on how they can maintian their registration
  • notifying of changes – explains when registered charities need to notify the ACNC of changes to their charity
  • record keeping and reporting – outlines record keeping and reporting requirements for registered charities
  • the ACNC Register – information about the ACNC Register which is a public database of Australian registered charities.
