Double defaulters

Charities who have failed to submit two Annual Information Statements

Charities who do not submit an Annual Information Statement for two or more years (demonstrating persistent non-compliance) risk their registration being revoked by the ACNC.

These charities are sent an intention to revoke notice (show cause) advising they have 28 days to get all their lodgements up to date or their charity status will be revoked. Charities that have their ACNC registration revoked lose their entitlements to Commonwealth charity tax concessions.

The ACNC reminds charities about submitting the Annual Information Statement using a variety of methods – for example, reminder letters, emails, newsletters, the Commissioner’s Column and social media campaigns.

In August 2017, 190 charities were sent a ‘Notice of Intention to Revoke Charity Registration’ (Show Cause Notice). If these charities wish to remain registered with the ACNC, they must submit their outstanding Annual Information Statements immediately.
