ATO handed mandate to police not-for-profits

Not-for-profit entities will soon have to disclose why they should be exempt from income tax as the government turns to the ATO for greater oversight over the sector.

From 1 July 2023, non-charitable not-for-profits (NFPs) with an active Australian Business Number will be required to provide information to the ATO on how they have self-assessed their eligibility for income tax exemptions.


NFPs can currently self-assess their eligibility for income tax exemptions without an obligation to report to the Tax Office.

As part of the federal budget, the ATO will now receive an additional $1.9 million to build a new online system to allow NFPs to submit online annual self-review forms with the information they ordinarily use to self-assess their eligibility for the exemption.

The government believes the measure will ensure that only eligible NFPs are accessing income tax exemptions.

More to come.
