The Department of Education (DoE), formerly the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE), is the Federal Government department that is responsible for education.

The ACNC has in place an arrangement with the DoE that sees non-government schools that are registered charities – and who must report annually to the ACNC – able to make use of streamlined reporting.

Under this arrangement, we can use certain financial information that a non-government school provides the DoE in its Financial Questionnaire and financial report to complete the financial section of its Annual Information Statement.

This means that when the non-government school does its Annual Information Statement, it does not need to complete the financial section or submit a financial report – we will have the information to complete this for them.
