There are many different types of trusts. Only trusts supporting a charitable purpose that meet legal meaning of charity and our requirements for registration can register as charities with the ACNC.

Charitable trusts registered with the ACNC have ongoing obligations under the ACNC Act. These include to:

  • notify us of certain changes
  • keep records
  • report to us each year
  • comply with Governance Standards.

Unless we or another government agency tell you otherwise, trusts that have obligations to another government agency (such as notification or reporting) must continue to meet these obligations.
