Election funding and financial disclosure obligations are regulated by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) pursuant to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Cth) (the Act). Under the Act, a 'third party' (a person or organisation other than a political party, candidate, members of the House of Representatives or Senate, or a donor) that incurs expenditure in the Commonwealth (Federal) electoral process may be required to lodge a financial dislcosure return with the AEC. 

The fact sheet below provides information on these financial disclosure obligations for not-for-profit organisations.
