One of the ACNC's objects is to 'promote the reduction of unnecessary regulatory obligations on the Australian not-for-profit sector'.

The ACNC works within the Commonwealth Government’s Regulator Performance Framework to reduce the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation – ‘red tape’.

As a part of our work to reduce red tape, the ACNC has streamlined reporting arrangements in place with other regulators to reduce the reporting and administrative burden on charities.

See our guidance on red tape reduction.
