Not For Profit
The federal government has conducted several inquiries and reviews since 2011 into a range of areas affecting the not-for-profit sector. This includes tax legislation relating to charities and not-for-profits as well as the overall regulatory environment. The ACNC was established under the Labor government in November 2012. The 2013 Coalition government is now reviewing the powers and overall remit of the ACNC, and is likely to scrap it, setting up instead a centre for excellence to look at continuing to raise governance standards. AMPAG's responses to these inquiries and reviews are listed here. (The government’s various discussion papers, reviews and exposure drafts can be found here.).
After participating fully in the not-for-profit reform over the past few years, AMPAG asks in this submission, how the repeal of the ACNC will reduce red tape for NFPs.Read More

We fully support the role and objectives of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits
