New reporting requirements in relation to foreign donations

Amendments to the funding and disclosure legislation recently came into effect on 23 October 2017.

The Electoral (Disclosure of Donations) Variation Regulations 2017 have inserted regulation 22A into the Electoral Regulations 2009.

Regulation 22A requires donors to provide additional information in Donor Returns.

The Donor Return – Gift to Relevant Entities form has been updated in light of regulation 22A. Donors are now required to complete an additional part of the return in relation to foreign donations (Part 3 of the return).

The form can be downloaded from our forms page.
