Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter, and Minister for Small Business and Assistant Treasurer, Kelly O’Dwyer, have announced that the Government has decided to retain the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
The decision ends 2 years of uncertainty about the future of the ACNC.
The Ministers said:
“It is intended that the ACNC will have a renewed focus on working with charities to help them to become more effective, and helping them to improve their governance.”
“The Government will continue to work with the ACNC, states and territories and the sector to identify areas where we can reduce the burden of red tape for charities and not-for-profit organisations.”
