For several charities, the Annual Information Statement (AIS) is required at different times, and the reporting period for a charity determines the deadline.
These dates apply to all ACNC-registered charities, individual charities as well as ACNC-approved reporting groups.
The standard ACNC reporting period is the financial year, from 1 July to 30 June. If the ACNC-registered charity uses a different reporting period, they will need to formally request to use this for the charity’s Annual Information Statement. Once approved, the charity no longer need to submit formal requests for a different reporting period.
To submit an annual information statement for a charity, sign into the charity portal and select the charity you are submitting for. Select the option to launch your 2022 Annual Information Statement by clicking on “Manage reporting.”
The Commissioner extended the deadline for charities that report to a regular 1 July to 30 June financial year, to 31 January 2023.
