Non-profit organisations (NPO)

Changes to your organisation
When running a not-for-profit organisation, you may experience changes in circumstances, such as changes to personnel, structure and activities, or you may have to end your organisation. You should understand how such changes can affect your tax situation and how to notify us of changes.
Getting started
When starting out as a non-profit organisation, there are some key things to do to ensure your organisation complies with any tax obligations.
Grants and sponsorship
If your organisation receives grants or sponsorships, it may need to pay GST on the amount received.
Investments, credits and refunds
Your not-for-profit (NFP) organisation may be eligible to claim credits such as franking credits and fuel tax credits. It may also be entitled to refunds of amounts withheld from investment income and activity statement refunds.
Non-profit News Service
The Non-profit News Service keeps you up-to-date on key tax issues affecting the non-profit sector, new publications we release and changes to tax law.
Records, reporting and paying tax
Know the type of records your not-for-profit (NFP) organisation should keep. Good records help you manage your organisation’s tax and make it easier to report and pay tax on time.
