The 2019 Annual Information Statement (AIS) Hub contains the information your registered charity needs to complete its AIS. Charities have an ongoing obligation to report annually, and filling out their AIS is a key component of this obligation.
The information that is submitted through the AIS process also helps the ACNC develop a greater understanding of the charity sector, contributes to improved charity transparency, and cuts red tape and duplicate reporting for the sector.
To fill out and submit your charity's 2019 AIS, log into the ACNC Charity Portal. Once you log in, you will be presented with the option to complete your charity's AIS.
We have also developed some support materials to help charities complete their AIS. They include:
- The 2019 AIS Guide - explanations and help for each section of the AIS.
- The 2019 AIS Checklist - a rundown of the information you need to complete the AIS and avoid common mistakes charities have made in previous years.
- Information on the extension on AIS submission for bushfire-affected charities
