SA Charity Legislation

The South Australian Government has introduced legislation to remove duplicated licence and reporting requirements for charities.

The legislation exempts charities that are registered with the ACNC from reporting requirements under the SA Associations Incorporation Act, and from the need for a separate SA fundraising licence.

The legislation also abolishes the need for different fundraising licences for events and for general fundraising, combining them into one licence category for non-ACNC registered charities.

There are approximately 4,000 South Australian based charities registered with the ACNC, and up to 1,000 of them may have duplicated reporting requirements at present.
