The ACNC has published its regulatory approach that explains the way we approach issues of compliance.
We understand that most people involved in charities are honest and trying to do the right thing. We will consider whether a charity has breached the ACNC Act and how that breach can be resolved.
Where appropriate, we will work with charities to allow them to resolve any issues.
We will act quickly and firmly where there is evidence of serious mismanagement or misappropriation, a serious or deliberate breach of the ACNC Act, or if vulnerable people or significant charitable assets are at risk.
The ACNC does not have the power to act on internal disputes, contract issues, policies or actions of boards or directors (that are within their powers), or employment issues such as unfair dismissal.
