An annual report is a publication which can detail a range of important information about a charity and its work over a 12 month period. It may include:

  • The charity's mission and vision
  • Overviews of a charity's activities and achievements during the previous 12 months, as well as future activities it has planned
  • Reports from key staff and board members, and information about the charity’s finances and governance.

The ACNC asks charities to provide a copy of their annual report - or a link to a page on their website where it can be viewed - as part of the Annual Information Statement (AIS).

Providing an annual report through the AIS is optional, and the report will appear on your organisation's Charity Register listing.
