Streamlining Ancillary Fund Reporting

Click here to subscribe to Not-for-Profit Law NotesIn an effort to reduce the administrative burden on charities, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) are collaborating and sharing data. This collaborative approach now means that ancillary funds registered as charities need only report their annual return once using the ACNC’s online Annual Information Statement.

Additionally, an extension of time for ancillary funds to complete their 2016 Annual Information Statement has been granted to align with the fund return deadline of 28 February 2017.

Ancillary funds that are not registered as charities must continue reporting to the ATO using the Ancillary Fund Return available on the ATO website.

If you have any questions regarding ancillary fund reporting please contact or .
