Justice Connect's Not-for-profit Law has made a submission in response to Treasury’s Consultation Paper on Deductible Gift Recipient reforms released on 22 August 2018.

Treasury sought feedback on a range of issues discussed in the package of deductible gift recipient (DGR) reforms announced on 5 December 2017:

  • the requirement for non-government organisations with DGR status to register as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) from 1 July 2019
  • transition arrangements to support existing organisations with DGR status to register as a charity with the ACNC
  • the Commissioner of Taxation’s discretion to exempt organisations with DGR status from the requirement to register as a charity in limited circumstances
  • the abolition of certain public fund requirements.
