ACNC is now operational

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Taskforce (ACNC Taskforce) has now become the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

The ACNC Taskforce website (http://acnctaskforce.treasury.gov.au/), which you may have previously referenced, has now been replaced with the new www.acnc.gov.au.

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) opened its doors as Australia’s first national, independent regulator of the not-for-profit (NFP) sector on Monday 3rd December.

The Government intends to recommend to the Governor General the appointment of Susan Pascoe AM as the inaugural Commissioner of the ACNC. Ms Pascoe has been the Interim Commissioner of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and head of the ACNC Taskforce since 1 July 2011.

The formal launch of the ACNC will be held next Monday, 10 December 2012 in Melbourne.
