Even though almost 70% of charities that were required to submit their 2018 Annual Information Statement by 31 March 2019 have already done so, we (the ACNC) are aware some charities encountered technical issues.
Because of this, I (ACNC Commissioner) am exercising my discretion to grant a further seven-day extension to the charities who had a due date of 31 March 2019. The extension means that penalties will not apply if you submit your 2018 Annual Information Statement by 7 April 2019.
I am also pleased to report that the issue that caused the slowness that many charities experienced has been resolved. The speed has improved significantly.
