Not-for-profit Law has made a supplementary submission to the ACNC Review in response to the Panel's invitation to provide further input to their deliberations on fundraising (which has surfaced as a key concern in the ACNC Review) in particular to provide reflections on the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) submission.

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission review panel report was tabled in Parliament on 22 August 2018. It makes 30 recommendations aimed at finding a balance between supporting the sector, reducing red tape, enhancing accountability and addressing misconduct. Overall, in our view, it is a clear, sensible and well-written report that supports our campaign to #fixfundraising in Australia. It recommends that the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) be amended to clarify its application to charitable and not-for-profit fundraising and a mandatory Code of Conduct be developed to sit alongside the ACL. We've put together a video unpacking some of the key recommendations in the 144-page report.
