The ACNC Tick of Charity Registration (the Registered Charity Tick) aims to gives reassurance to the public that the charity is transparent and accountable and listed on the ACNC Charity Register.

We hope that the Registered Charity Tick will have a positive effect on public trust and confidence in the charity sector and we encourage members of the public to check the Register to find out more details about charities they wish to support.

The Registered Charity Tick can be used by registered charities on printed and digital media, and where possible we encourage charities to link the Tick to their listing on the charity register.

Registered charities that wish to use the Tick must:

  • submit their Annual Information Statement within six months of the due date - unless an extension has been granted - and
  • meet all other obligations to maintain their registration status with the ACNC.

If a registered charity has not filed its Annual Information Statement as required by the ACNC, or is the subject of an enforcement power under the ACNC Act which is published on the ACNC Register, it will not be permitted to download the Registered Charity Tick.
