What happens if your DGR doesn’t meet eligibility requirements?

We've recently reviewed non-government DGRs against the requirements to be a registered charity or operated by one. We are now beginning to revoke the DGR endorsement of those that are no longer entitled.

This means that if your DGR doesn't meet eligibility requirements and hasn't been approved by the ATO for a 3-year extension, it will have its DGR status revoked. You will receive a notice with the date, reason for revocation and your right to review the decision.

If your DGR has its status revoked, you can re-apply for endorsement once it satisfies the eligibility requirements. If you decide to register as a charity, visit the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission's (ACNC) websiteExternal Link to check charity registration eligibility requirements.
