Cutting red tape could save charities up to $29 million, according to a new report released by the ACNC and Deloitte Access Economics.
In releasing the Options for Alignment of Regulatory Obligations on the Charity Sector report, the ACNC noted that its obligations could replace state and territory regulatory requirements and the Federal Government should “align state, territory, and ACNC regulatory obligations”.
ACNC Commissioner Susan Pascoe AM said that the stakeholders canvassed by Deloitte “overwhelmingly” identified the ACNC as well placed to reduce red tape for charities. “This report has highlighted the options, all of which will require collaboration across levels of government,” Pascoe said.
“The ACNC will continue to work with the state and territory government agencies to implement practical measures to reduce red tape for charities. Red tape reduction will be a priority for the ACNC in 2016 and beyond.”
