More than 100 charities who failed to report to the national charity regulator for two years, known as double defaulters, have lost their charity status. These charities have now lost their entitlement to claim charity tax concessions.
Submitting an Annual Information Statement is a legislative requirement to maintaining charity status. It is also an important element in maintaining transparency and accountability in Australia’s charity sector.
The 109 charities that have been revoked were not able to be contacted directly by the ACNC, despite several attempts to do so. As they have failed to meet the requirements of registration, these charities have now lost their charity status.
