Constitutions, DGR and ACNC: Resources

Constitutions, DGR and the ACNC - Resources

There are upcoming changes to non-profit (NFP) eligibility and tax exemptions that could impact your organisation. It’s essential to be aware of what these changes mean for you and how you can meet the requirements and definitions of charity status and tax exemptions.

Use the below two resources to help your organisation!

Charity/NFP Assessment Tool

This Charity/NFP Assessment tool is designed to introduce updated requirements and regulations that are critical for gaining and/or maintaining income tax exemption status for not-for-profits and charities.

It will guide you through an initial review of your constitution and provide direction for the next steps required. Deakin University, through its Law School, has developed this survey tool.

Your responses will be received by Neighbourhood Houses Victoria (NHVic), which will be working on behalf of the Australian Neighbourhood Houses and Centres Association (ANHCA).

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.
