Named. The Canberra charities not complying with the regulator

acnc logo

THE Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) has named 80 Canberra charities who have failed to lodge reports, earning them a “red-mark”.

ACNC Commissioner, Susan Pascoe, said the red-mark on the charity’s listing on the ACNC Charity Register, available online at, sends a clear message to potential donors, volunteers and grant makers that the charities are not compliant with their ACNC obligations.

“These charities were required to submit their 2014 Annual Information Statement by 31 January 2015,” Susan said.

“These charities, which are now more than six months late, have a red-mark on their listing on the Charity Register to highlight to people that the charity has yet to meet the legal requirement of submitting their 2014 Annual Information Statement.

“Once the charity submits its overdue 2014 Annual Information Statement, the red-mark will be removed.

“Submitting an Annual Information Statement is not only an obligation of being an ACNC registered charity, it’s also a way for charities to demonstrate transparency and show the public the work they are doing in the community.

“To those who haven’t submitted yet, I urge you to join the 40 000 registered charities that have already submitted their 2014 Annual Information Statement.

“If your charity needs assistance submitting its Annual Information Statement, contact our friendly staff on 13 ACNC.”

Charities can check their reporting due date by viewing their charity’s entry on the ACNC Charity Register or by logging into the Charity Portal at

    ACT Critical Incident Stress Management decided not to renew for charitable status in 2015. The organisation is volunteers only and has no specific funding requirements, so charitable status was unnecessary.
