Only registered charities can display the Registered Charity Tick. If you see the Tick, it means the charity is listed on the Charity Register and is regulated by the ACNC.
We encourage people to look up charities on the Register before donating.
The Register has information about charities’ operations including who runs it, how they spend their money, if they are up to date with their reporting and if any compliance action has been taken against them.
Registered charities that wish to use the Tick must:
- submit their Annual Information Statement within six months of the due date - unless an extension has been granted - and
- meet all other obligations to maintain their registration status with the ACNC.
If a registered charity has not filed its Annual Information Statement as required by the ACNC, or is the subject of an enforcement power under the ACNC Act which is published on the ACNC Register, it will not be permitted to download the Registered Charity Tick.
