Community Interest: Save the Date for the ‘Not for Profit Reforms: What do you need to know?’
Roadshow, April 29 â€“ May 2:
The federal government is embarking on a broad-ranging reform of regulation of the not-for-profit sector. It Includes changes to tax concessions for charities, a statutory definition of charity to determine who is entitled to concessions, the establishment of the ACNC with associated governance and financial reporting requirements, national fundraising guidelines, and legislation to prohibit “gag” clauses in government contracts.
It is hard to keep up with the changes and the processes we are asked to comment on and adapt to. So SACOSS have teamed with Volunteering SA/NT to present info sessions that provide an overview of what the changes are, how they fit together, the potential impact on not-for-profit organisations, and what the community services/charity sector might want from the reform process.
Alongside these sessions, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), the new independent national regulator of charities, will also present free education sessions to help you get practical guidance and support to understand how the ACNC affects your organisation. The ACNC only regulates charities at this stage, however not-for-profits may wish to come along to find out how the ACNC may affect them in the future.
These FREE information sessions will be taking place in Adelaide and regional South Australia, and we encourage you to Save the Dates until further details are provided and registrations open.
