Charity Compliance Report Released

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) has recently released its 2018 Charity Compliance Report.

The Charity Compliance Report examines the ACNC’s compliance and enforcement activities. The latest edition of the report highlights that more than 1,800 concerns were raised about charities, up 6 per cent compared to 2017. The ACNC is of the view that such an increase is not necessarily reflective of charity behaviour but rather an indicator of the community’s growing awareness of the ACNC.

The ACNC also performed more work internally to uncover wrongdoing by charities, with concerns proactively identified through intelligence gathering and data-matching initiatives more than doubling from 8 per cent in 2017 to 20 per cent in 2018.
