2019 Group Annual Information Statement

The 2019 Group Annual Information Statement (AIS) can only be used if you are submitting the AIS for multiple charities as part of a pre-approved ACNC reporting group.

Charities that submit the AIS as part of an approved group must continue to notify the ACNC individually of changes to their governing document and Responsible Persons.

Charities notify the ACNC of changes to the governing document or Responsible Persons in the ACNC Charity Portal. The new Charity Portal allows individuals to log in with their own email address and update the details of charities for which they are an authorised contact.

While you're filling out the 2019 Group AIS, make sure you follow the instructions, including the comments in the column headings. When you're done, send the completed Group AIS, along with a financial report (if required), to reporting@acnc.gov.au.

If you are submitting one or more financial reports with the Group AIS, see our information about specific group reporting conditions as well as financial report requirements and a checklist to help you.

Information about the 2020 Group Annual Information Statement

Charities that are part of group reporting arrangements with the ACNC are set to enjoy improvements to their process, with the 2020 Group Annual Information Statement (AIS) going online for the first time.

The 2020 Group AIS will be available for group reporters to complete through the ACNC Charity Portal by January 2021. This process will replace the current spreadsheet-based method of submitting group AISs and will reduce the administrative burden on reporting groups.

And for those groups with a reporting period that ends between 30 June 2020 and 29 September 2020, the ACNC has extended the reporting due date to 31 March 2021.

Group reporters should ensure they have access to the ACNC Charity Portal so they can submit their Group AIS online. If you have not used the Portal before, refer to our guidance on doing so.
