What's Coming Up.

Charity compliance report December 2012 - December 2014 and beyond

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) was established on 3 December 2012 as the dedicated national regulator of charities. We work to enhance public trust and confidence in the Australian not-for-profit sector by helping to ensure charities meet the public expectations of good governance and transparency. This was reflected in the introduction of governance standards on 1 July 2013 and the subsequent restatement and clarification of the common law definition of charity through the introduction of the Charities Act 2013 (Cth) (Charities Act) on 1 January 2014.

The ACNC supports charities to adopt and follow good practice. Our experience is that almost all charities want to address any regulatory risk that is raised with them. As a proportionate and light touch regulator, we are able to build on this disposition of charities to do the right thing.

Over the past two years, the ACNC has focused on creating a reliable register of charities. Over 5 000 entities have been newly registered since the establishment of the ACNC and 6 000 entities have been revoked as a result of being found inactive, have voluntarily revoked their registration themselves or have been revoked for compliance reasons.

The ACNC recognises that the overwhelming majority of registered charities are set up for charitable purposes. Our regulatory approach reflects that most people involved in charities are acting honestly and trying to do the right thing. However, the ACNC does act swiftly and firmly where vulnerable people or significant charity assets are at risk, where there is evidence of serious mismanagement or misappropriation, or if there is a serious or deliberate breach of the ACNC Act.

The ACNC provides education and advice so charities understand their regulatory obligations. There is great potential for charities to learn from the good practice of their peers, and from those instances where poor practice or mischief has occurred.

This publication is a thorough analysis of compliance activity that has taken place since we were established in December 2012. Our secrecy and privacy provisions limit the information that can be publically released when action (such as revocation) is taken against a charity. This report uses aggregated data and de-identified information to give readers an insight into the compliance work of the ACNC. It provides examples of common problems identified and provides practical advice to assist charities to avoid these types of issues occurring. This report also highlights the key areas of concern and our compliance focus for the year ahead.

We look forward to continuing to undertake our regulatory work to help sustain a robust, vibrant, innovative and independent sector in Australia.
