New compliance requirements for NFP income tax exemptions
The Government will invest $1.9m for the ATO to build an online system to enhance the transparency of income tax exemptions claimed by not-for-profit entities (NFPs).
It will be in action from 1 July 2023
Currently non-charitable NFPs can self-assess their eligibility for income tax exemptions, without an obligation to report to the ATO. The ATO will require income tax exempt NFPs with an active Australian Business Number (ABN) to submit online annual self-review forms with the information they ordinarily use to self-assess their eligibility for the exemption. This measure will ensure that only eligible NFPs are accessing income tax exemptions.
