To be a charity, an organisation must be not-for-profit, have a charitable purpose and be for the public benefit (other than where the charitable purpose is the relief of poverty). A charity may be entitled to seek endorsement from the ATO for various concessions.
The Charities section contains the following tables:
- Table 41: Tax concession charities by entity type
- Table 42: Main charitable purpose of tax concession charities, as at 31 October 2013
We also have a set of more detailed tables available, in the form of Excel spreadsheets, containing charities data at a much finer level.

Data presented in this section includes active tax concession charities as at 31 October each year.
