Research into Commonwealth Regulatory and Reporting Burdens on the Charity Sector - A report prepared for the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission

Published Literature

2014

This report provides the ACNC an independent insight into the source and scale of government requirements on charities, and to identify which of these requirements constitute red tape. The report examines the experiences of 15 case study charities drawn from subsectors in which there was anecdotal evidence of significant red tape and where research on the burdens imposed was lacking: social welfare, other education (excluding schools and universities) and health/aged care. EY also surveyed nearly 400 charities and analysed publicly available data.

A key finding is that Commonwealth funding agreement obligations impose a greater burden on charities than legislative obligations.
