If you are a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC), income tax endorsement by the ATO generally follows as a matter of course. Depending upon your category of charity, you may also be entitled to GST concessions, FBT concessions or possibly FBT exemption.
If you are a non-charitable not-for-profit, depending upon the category in which you fall, you may be able to self-assess your entitlement to income tax exemption. Alternatively, you may still be required to apply for endorsement with the ATO.
Neumann & Turnour Lawyers has extensive experience in dealing with the ATO. We can assist by providing advice on the issues which generally arise in such circumstances and, if required, in drafting submissions to help your organisation obtain the concessions to which they are entitled.
