The updated Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission website is being met with positive feedback from the sector, after a four day website closure to fix speed and accessibility issues.
The ACNC reopened their website on Monday morning, and said while the web content remained the same, the site had a new look, the charity register was now faster and easier to use, and the way to log into the charity portal has changed.
ACNC commissioner Dr Gary Johns told Pro Bono News he wanted to thank charities for their patience while the website was updated.
“This has allowed us to improve the ACNC’s online presence and provide a more stable, reliable website and charity portal,” Johns said.
The update was welcomed by several in the sector, who said the website was noticeably faster, and easier to use.
Justice Connect’s head of not-for-profit law Sue Woodward said charities would have to be careful about the URLs they were sending out, as many had changed.
Johns also recently announced the ACNC would be extending the 2018 Annual Information Statement from 31 December to 31 March, 2019, to combat any adverse effects of the four day website closure.
