  • Other obligations for not-for-profits

    Your not-for-profit organisation may need to consider some other obligations to its employees and contractors.

    The obligations listed below for not-for-profit organisations are the same as for businesses.

    Child support payments

    Sometimes employers are required to deduct money from employees' pay under the Child Support Scheme.

    You do not need to do anything unless you are asked to by Child Support. If this happens, you will receive an employer package about what to do.

    Child support deductions

    Child support deductions are not tax amounts, so they should not be shown on payment summaries.

    It is illegal to discriminate against any employee or potential employee because of their child support or maintenance obligations.

    For more information, contact Child Support by:

    Workplace giving programs

    Your employees may want to donate part of their pay to a deductible gift recipient (DGR) through a workplace giving program.

    Workplace giving programs are arrangements where all of the following apply:

    • part of an employee's pay is paid, or is to be paid, as a gift to a DGR
    • the gift is paid by the employer at the direction of an employee
    • the gift is made under a regular, planned giving arrangement.
