Welcome to the ACNC's 2023 Annual Information Statement Hub, which contains links to information that will help your charity complete its 2023 Annual Information Statement.

All charities have an ongoing obligation to report to the ACNC, and completing the Annual Information Statement is an important part of meeting this obligation.

The information submitted through charities' Annual Information Statements contributes to improved charity transparency. It also helps us develop a greater understanding of the sector and reduce duplicated reporting.

Some information your charity provides in its Annual Information Statement will also appear on its Charity Register page. This information can make your charity's work more visible and can help you promote your charity's programs and activities to the many potential supporters that visit the Charity Register every day.

To submit your charity's 2023 Annual Information Statement, log in to the ACNC Charity Portal.

Annual Information Statement reporting and charity size thresholds

A charity's size is determined by its annual revenue for the reporting period.

Depending on your charity's size:

  • the number and types of questions it will need to answer in its 2023 Annual Information Statement will vary
  • it may also be required to submit an annual financial report.

Charity size threshold are outlined in the table below.

Charity size Annual revenue Audit/review requirement
Small Less than $500,000 Only have to complete their Annual Information Statement online
Medium $500,000 to $2,999,999 Financial report can be either reviewed or audited
Large $3 million or more Financial report must be audited

It is also important charities are aware of any reporting requirements they may have to the ACNC that are based on the state or territory they may be incorporated in, or fundraise in. View more information on our red tape reduction efforts.
