  • Program 1.4 Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission

    The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is the independent regulator of charities at the Commonwealth level. The ACNC Commissioner has a number of statutory functions and regulatory powers, as set out in the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012 and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Regulation 2013.

    Due to its operational independence and statutory obligations, the ACNC has produced its own annual report, which is available at acnc.gov.auExternal Link.

    Purpose

    The ACNC’s objects are:

    • to maintain, protect and enhance public trust and confidence in the Australian not-for-profit sector
    • to support and sustain a robust, vibrant, independent and innovative Australian not-for-profit sector
    • to promote the reduction of unnecessary regulatory obligations on the Australian not-for-profit sector.

    Annual performance statement

    The annual performance statement for the ACNC is included as part of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission annual report 2017–18.

    The performance criteria for the ACNC are set out on pages 200–203 of the Australian Taxation Office Budget Statements (in the Treasury Portfolio Budget Statement) and pages 6–8 of the ACNC corporate plan 2017–18.
