Delay to commencement of Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission
24 Sep 2012
In media release No 2012/108, issued 21 September 2012, the Assistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation, David Bradbury, announced that the proposed 1 October 2012 date for the commencement of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) will be delayed.
Legislation to establish the ACNC passed the House of Representatives last week. The bill has moved to the Senate but is not expected to be debated and voted on until some time in October 2012. The ACNC will commence shortly after legislation passes Parliament.
