New DGR category – Men’s Sheds & Women’s Sheds

In the 2019-20 Budget, the Government announced it will establish a DGR general category to enable Men’s Sheds and Women’s Sheds (Sheds) to access DGR status from 1 July 2020.  The proposed change to allow community sheds to access DGR status from 1 July 2020 is not yet law. If the law passes, Sheds will need to be registered as a charity with the ACNC and be endorsed with the ATO as a DGR.
