Revoked charity accuses ACNC of failing to satisfactorily explain decision

The national charity regulator, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), has revoked the charity status of  Aussie Farms Inc.  following an investigation which was completed on 18 November 2019, with the decision to revoke charity status effective from that date.

Although the revocation is reflected on the Register, the ACNC is prevented from publishing the findings from investigations, or the nature of the concerns, due to secrecy provisions in the ACNC Act.

In a statement published through their website, Aussie Farm said “ACNC has failed to satisfactorily explain why this decision has been made.”
