As of 1 July 2018, the annual reporting requirements for many Victorian incorporated associations have changed.
If your association is also a charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), for any financial year of the association that ends on or after 30 June 2018, you will no longer need to:
- lodge an annual statement for that association with Consumer Affairs Victoria
- pay an annual statement lodgement fee.
You must continue to lodge the Annual Information Statement with the ACNC for each financial year and follow their regulatory requirements.
The new reporting exemption only applies to annual reporting obligations. All incorporated associations must continue to notify us via myCAV of any changes, such as the association’s name, details or rules.
The exemption is not retrospective. For financial years that end before 30 June 2018, you must still submit separate annual statements to the ACNC and to us.
For more information about how the exemption applies, view our Lodging an annual statement page.
You can confirm whether an incorporated association is a registered charity using the ACNC charity register.
For information about reporting obligations to the ACNC, visit the Regulation of charities page on the ACNC website.
