A reduction by the government in the amount of tax that a particular group of people or type of organisation has to pay or a change in the tax system that benefits those people. Tax concessions are available to charities from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and from relevant state and territory governments. Charities must be registered with the ACNC to apply for charity tax concessions from the ATO. They may not need to be registered to access State, Territory or local government tax concessions.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
