When you apply to have the Annual Information Statement withheld, this does not include the financial report, other financial documents or your Governing Document attached in the Annual Information Statement. You need to apply to withhold each document separately.
You can ask the ACNC to withhold a variety of details about your charity - or details linked to the names and positions of Responsible Persons - from the public ACNC Register. This information can include:
- Legal name
- Other name(s)
- Address for service
- Charity street address
- Charity phone number
- Charity email address
If you apply to have any of the above pieces of information withheld from the ACNC Register, they will not automatically be withheld from Annual Information Statements which appear as PDF documents on the Charity Register.
- Responsible Persons’ names and positions
For all charities, only the name and position of each Responsible Person will be published on the ACNC Register (for example: John Smith, Director).
The ACNC will not publish the contact details or date of birth of any of your charity's Responsible Persons (such as a board or committee member, or trustee) on the ACNC Register. You do not need to apply to have the Responsible Persons' contact details or date of birth withheld from the Register.
- Annual Information Statement
- Governing Document
When supplying the ACNC with the charity’s governing documents, you are able to upload two versions: one complete document and one document with any personal information (such as names) blanked out.
You can do this via the charity portal without applying to withhold information. The ACNC will contact you if it considers that some or all of the blanked out information should be published.
- Financial report
When you apply to have your financial report withheld, this does not include the financial information questions in the Annual Information Statement.
- Other financial document (such as a review or audit report)
