Not only is 30 June busy for tax reasons, it is also the final date for many charities to submit their 2014 Annual Information Statement (AIS) to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
Charities are required to lodge an AIS within six months of the end of the charity’s reporting period, therefore those reporting to a calendar year must submit their 2014 AIS by 30 June.
It is important to complete and lodged your 2014 AIS on time to avoid overdue notices and potential penalties. The ACNC website has a comprehensive guide to completing the AIS.
The ACNC has also made it simpler to change your ‘address for service’ and request a new charity portal login password. To update your information or request a new password, you can now click on the ‘Rest your password’ function on the log-in page and enter your charity’s ABN.
