• Every year counts – not for profit organisations

    We're working to improve your experience of the tax and superannuation systems based on what you told us you needed. The blueprint outlines how the ATO is reinventing the experience you have

    Some changes will happen in the near future and others will take longer. We want to make every year count, so you'll see a program of improvements being delivered now and in the years ahead.

    Improvements in 2016–17

    Here are the key initiatives you've told us are important that have been or will be delivered in 2016–17:

    • Reporting once for ancillary funds– as a registered charity ancillary fund, you no longer need to report separately to us. You can report once, online, to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) who will share your information with us. This initiative is being delivered with the ACNC.
    • Getting informationExternal Link– you now have more options (such as webinarsExternal Link and online videosExternal Link) to help you understand your entitlements and obligations.
    • Easy-to-understand information – information for not-for-profit organisations on our website is easier to understand, which helps you with your entitlements and obligations.

    Improvements in 2015–16
