Income tax reporting for not-for-profit organisations

Guidance Note: Review your organisation’s income tax status
Please read this first, as only once you have reviewed your organisation’s status will you be able to determine if you need to act (and how). For organisations within the scope of the new reporting requirements, this guide will assist you to understand your options in regard to exemptions and reporting. A flowchart has been included to help simplify this rather complicated process.
Guidance Note: Preparing for charity registration
After undertaking a review of your organisation’s income tax status, you may determine charity registration is the best path to take. If so, please refer to this guidance note before attempting the ACNC registration form, as any missing or incorrect information will delay the application process.
Your questions answered: Income tax reporting changes and charity registration for landcare groups
This document addresses frequently asked questions arising from the income tax reporting changes. If you’ve read both guidance notes and have further questions, you may find the answers here.
