Returns for registered political parties and associated entities

The first round of returns for registered political parties and associated entities are due Sunday 31 January 2016. These returns will be published on the Electoral Commission SA website within three business days.

These returns relate to the period from 1 July 2015 and 31 December 2015, and will contain information regarding the total receipts by these organisations since 1 July 2015 and their total debts as at 31 December 2015. 

The parties and entities will also disclose the identities of any person or organisation from whom they have received more than $5057 during that period or to whom they owe more than $5057 at the end of the period.

Returns are supported by Audit Certificates issued by auditors registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and will be subject to compliance verification by staff from the Electoral Commission SA’s Funding and Disclosure branch.
