AUDIT UPDATE - HELP WITH AGMs
The ACNC has developed a handy self-evaluation tool that charities may use to assess whether they are meeting governance obligations.
With the AGM season in full swing, self-evaluation gives you a chance to see if your charity is meeting ACNC standards.
Download the tool at www.acnc.gov.au/for-charities/manage-your-charity/governance-hub/governance-standards/self-evaluation-charities.
The ACNC does not require charities to hold an AGM, however they should check their rules and legislation that applies to them to find out whether they are required to do so.
You must notify the ACNC of certain changes that your charity may make at its AGM (such as its legal name, responsible persons or governing documents).
The ACNC has developed a range of resources to help charities with their AGMs.
