Constitutions, DGR and The ACNC
There are changes coming to not-for-profit (NFP) eligibility and tax exemptions.
We strongly recommend you take the time to consider your organisation's purpose and activities against specific requirements of an eligible income tax exempt entity before 1 July 2024.
If the purpose of your Neighbourhood House does not match the definitions of NFP correctly, they may decide that the organisation does not meet requirements and you could be at risk of losing the tax exemption/NFP status.
We have a number of available supports to help you navigate these changes or gaining NFP and DGR status:
If you already have charity status, we strongly recommend you attend a Community of Practice to ensure your purpose and constitution comply with requirements.
If you do not yet have charity or DGR status and would like to apply, you can do so through the bulk register. This is still in development stages, and will hopefully be available in early 2024.
Community of Practice
Cameron hosts a session on Constitutions, DGR and The ACNC every Friday at 11:30am AEDT during until the changes come into effect 1 July 2024. You do not need to make an appointment, these sessions are casual workshops on a drop-in basis. Cameron will tailor the information to the attendants, so recordings are not available.
Registering will give you access to the Zoom link and allow you to save it to your calendar. This link is used for all 2024 meetings, so you only need to register once.
