The AAT ruling affirms ACNC’s approach to PBI eligibility

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission welcomes an Administrative Appeals Tribunal decision that endorses the ACNC’s approach to determining charities’ eligibility for registration as a public benevolent institution.

Women’s Life Centre Inc. has been a registered charity since 1 July 2017 under two other subtypes − advancing health and advancing social or public welfare.  In December 2018, the ACNC declined to also register Women’s Life Centre as a PBI.
