  • Not-for-profit Stewardship Group

    The Not-for-profit Stewardship Group (NFPSG) was established to foster strategic discussions about the major issues affecting not-for-profit organisations and their representatives. The group includes members that represent a broad spectrum of not-for-profit clients and key stakeholders from the not-for-profit community. The primary role and focus of the NFPSG is to:

    • consider issues around current tax administration and law as they relate to not-for-profits
    • consult on new policy initiatives proposed by government
    • identify opportunities to improve the tax and super systems – importantly, this includes making it easier for not-for-profit organisations and their representatives to access the concessions to which they are entitled and to meet their obligations
    • gain insights into current issues not-for-profit organisations and their representatives face
    • identify emerging issues or developments that may be of concern to not-for-profit organisations and their representatives
    • partner with the not-for-profit community to find appropriate solutions for issues raised and to improve the not-for-profit client experience in the tax and super systems
    • share key ATO messages with the not-for-profit community.

    The NFPSG is not able to comment on, or advocate new law change proposals on behalf of individuals or groups.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins the consultation framework arrangements.
