Unless we tell you otherwise, ACNC obligations are in addition to any other obligations your charity has under other laws or to other regulators. The ACNC is working with other government departments and agencies to reduce red tape for charities.
Companies limited by guarantee
If your charity is a company registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), registration with the ACNC transfers some of your notification and reporting obligations from ASIC to the ACNC. For more information, read our companies limited by guarantee page.
If your charity is an ORIC-registered Indigenous corporation, you need to continue to notify ORIC of changes to your corporation. ORIC will share these changes with the ACNC. There are some optional changes about your corporation’s charity status that you can notify the ACNC. Read more about when you should contact ORIC or the ACNC.
If your charity is an incorporated association you will still have to notify your state or territory regulator for incorporated associations (such as a fair trading or consumer affairs agency). Find out more about ASIC and other regulators.
