Before you Donate
You need to read this first...
1. PROHIBITED DONORS:
We cannot accept donations from the following people:
a property developer;
a tobacco industry business entity;
a liquor industry business entity;
a gambling industry business entity;
any industry representative organisation if the majority of its members are such prohibited donors; and
a close associate of a prohibited donor.
it is also unlawful for someone to donate on behalf of a prohibited donor or for us to accept a donation we suspect is being made on behalf of a prohibited donor.
2. REPORTABLE DONATIONS:
Any donation over $999 is a reportable donation - which means the electoral commission and any member of the public will know the name of the donor.
Please note this reportable donation total is accumulative. If someone buys a ticket to an event for $100, then an auction item for $850 then raffle tickets for $60, then this accumulated amount of $1010 is considered a reportable donation.
- Individuals making a reportable donation (over $999) must be on an Australian electoral roll.
- Companies making a reportable donation (over $999) donating must have an ABN
3. CAPS ON DONATIONS:
The cap for both individuals and companies is $6100 in any financial year.
Please note again that this cap is accumulative and doesn't have to be a one off donation.
4. TAX DEDUCTABILITY:
Any donation over $2 is tax deductable, but only to an amount of $1500.
e.g If someone donated the maximum amount of $6100, they can only claim $1500 as a tax deduction. Visit the ATO website here on political donations
5. ANONYMOUS DONATIONS:
Definitely no anonymous donations allowed - if a donor's identity cannot be confirmed within three days of receipt, all funds will be returned to their account.
