CCA’s Submission Preparation: What are your priorities?

Treasurer Joe Hokey has invited submissions in line with the Inquiry’s terms of reference by the end of March. As an important and growing sector of the economy, this is a valuable discussion for the not-for-profit sector to contribute to and be involved in.

These terms of reference outline the role and function of the National Commission of Audit (NCA) - focusing primarily on the role of government, what it should or should not be involved in, return on government spending, identifying potential savings, duplication and waste. Given many charities and not-for-profit organisations receive government funding, the NCA findings will be critical not only in terms of red tape and compliance costs imposed by the government, but also in terms of where the role of charities and not-for-profit organisations should be expanded or reduced.

MEMORANDUM TO THE HEADS OF DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

ACNC was created following extensive inquiries and sector consultation over fifteen years including six parliamentary inquiries - all called for an independent regulator - all concluded the ATO should not be the de facto regulator for the NFP sector.  Most initial sector concerns have been addressed with the three ACNC objects being amended to take account of the major issues raised.

The FBT discussion – what is the CCA position?

In developing policy related to taxation concessions provided to the charities and not-for-profit sector, CCA has consistently adopted a longer term view of what might best serve the sector’s interests, both now and into the future.
