About this event

Are you thinking of becoming a registered charity?  Are you uncertain about if and how you can register? Wondering what the process looks like?
If so, join us for a FREE special edition webinar in partnership with the charities regulator, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). 

The ACNC will cover:

  • Why register as a charity?
  • Who is eligible to become a charity?
  • How to register?
  • Top tips on ensuring a smooth application process - and how to avoid follow-up enquiries with the ACNC

You'll receive:

  • 75-minutes of plain-language training 
  • An opportunity to ask questions of the presenter.  
  • A copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)  
  • Information on further resources and support  

Who should attend:

  • Board members and staff of any not-for-profit interested in applying for charity status.
  • Not-for-profits may be prompted to register as a charity because of recent changes to the requirements for not-for-profits that self-assess as income tax exempt. If so, this webinar is for you.
