The Government announced on Friday 4.3.2016, that it will retain the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter, and Minister for Small Business and Assistant Treasurer, Kelly O’Dwyer, said the decision followed extensive consultation with the sector on the alternative option of repealing and replacing the ACNC.

Mr Porter said it is intended that the ACNC will have a renewed focus on working with charities to help them to become more effective, and helping them to improve their governance.
