Submission to the Financial System Inquiry - 31 March 2014

Effective financial systems for the not for profit sector and the community

31 March 2014

This submission addresses the terms of reference for the Financial System Inquiry.

CCA has carefully considered the full terms of reference and notes the interest of the Treasurer Joe Hockey in obtaining a range of views about the financial systems operating in Australia and their impact on users and our various communities.

CCA has taken a broad view of the financial system, but focused our submission on six specific issues impacting across the whole not-for-profit sector:

  1. access to capital
  2. government financial systems
  3. taxation
  4. philanthropy and sponsorship
  5. mergers, collaboration and brokers
  6. technology and services.
