    Using this worksheet

    Who should use this worksheet

    All endorsed charities should use this worksheet.

    Charities that have been endorsed to access income tax exemption must tell us if they stop being entitled to endorsement. Things that can affect your organisation’s entitlement are changes to its purpose and operations, physical presence in Australia and loss of deductible gift recipient (DGR) endorsement.

    We recommend you review your entitlement to endorsement:

    • on an annual basis
    • when there is a major change in your organisation’s structure or operations.

    What you need

    • The ATO notice that states you are endorsed for charity tax concessions – if you cannot find the notice, view your endorsement details on the ABN Lookup website at abn.business.gov.auExternal Link
    • Your organisation’s governing or constituent documents, and information about its activities and finances
    • Access to information on our website

    When you have completed the worksheet

    • Submit it to your Board/Committee/Trustee for their approval.
    • Keep the completed worksheet with your organisation’s other records – it shows why and how you arrived at the decision on your organisation’s income tax status and will help future office bearers.
    • Do not send the completed worksheet to us.

    No longer entitled to endorsement

    If you work out that your organisation is no longer entitled to endorsement, you must tell us in writing.
