  • DGRs need to register as a charity

    Tax law has been amended, so that from 14 December 2021 all non-government deductible gift recipients (DGRs) will need to register as a charity. This amendment does not apply to ancillary funds or DGRs specifically listed in tax law.

    If your DGR is not already a registered charity, you will need to take steps to register with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

    Transitional arrangements are available to provide you with additional time to meet the new requirements. Check if your organisation is eligible for the following transitional periods:

    • a 12-month transitional period to become a registered charity
    • an additional three-year extension by application.

    More information

    If you have questions about DGR endorsement, the transitional arrangements or what steps you need to take, phone us on 1300 130 248 between 8.00am and 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.
