  • Privacy notice – Deductible gift recipient endorsement application form and instructions

    We are authorised by the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, the Tax Administration Act 1953 and the A New Tax System (Australian Business Number) Act 1999 to ask for information in the Deductible gift recipient endorsement application form. We need this information to help us endorse your organisation as a deductible gift recipient and to help us maintain the details relating to your organisation that are recorded on our systems. If the information is not collected, there could be a delay processing your application or an error in your organisation's record.

    We also provide taxpayer information to treaty partners overseas under international tax agreements.

    If you have an Australian Business Number, some the information collected on this application will also be used to update the Australian Business Register (ABR). Where authorised by law, selected information on the ABR may be made publicly available and some may be passed to a wide range of other government agencies, including Commonwealth, State, Territory and local government agencies.

    The following information will be publicly available through the register:

    • Your organisations entity type - charity, public benevolent institution, health promotion charity or income tax exempt fund
    • the tax concessions it has been endorsed to access
    • the date of effect for each endorsement.
    • Our privacy policy contains important information about your privacy, including information how you can access and seek correction of information we hold about you, how to make a complaint if you think we have breached the Australian Privacy Principles and how we deal with any privacy complaints.
