Does participating in NRAS impact on charitable status for tax purposes?

Existing charities could participate in the establishment phase of NRAS (2008-09 and 2009-10 income years) without affecting their charitable status, due to the transitional provisions.

In the 2010-11 and later years, the charitable status of a charity may be affected by participating in the NRAS, as normal definitions of a charitable purpose apply.
