An Authorised Person is someone who holds a position in a charity that gives them authority to declare and sign documents for the charity.

Common examples of an Authorised Person are a chief executive officer, chief financial officer, company secretary or a member of the senior management team.

A charity can also choose to authorise an agent (for example, a lawyer or accountant) to sign forms or documents on its behalf.

See our guidance about who can sign ACNC forms.
