Quick update about the ACNC's progress to date re: complaints received/current investigations here: https://s1-us3.ixquick-proxy.com/do...6343q&ekdata=53bfec1cecdb0e9a56b03888cbcd2856
Australia’s charity regulator, the Australian Charities and Not for profits Commission (ACNC) has received 119 complaints about charities since it began operating in December - the majority from members of the public alleging fraud.
Not all complaints made about charities fall within the ACNC’s jurisdiction,” according to ACNC Assistant Commissioner, Murray Baird.
“However, of the complaints and referrals received, 72 were referred to the ACNC’s Compliance and Strategic Intelligence team, resulting in 37 investigations.
“Of the cases received and assessed by the ACNC, 28 per cent have been related to allegation of fraud, which is the most common risk category,” Baird said.
If the ACNC uses enforcement powers and imposes sanctions as a result of an investigation into a charity, Baird says this will be included on the charity's listing on the ACNC Register.
However, that part of the ACNC website will not be operational until July 1, 2013 when charities will begin posting their annual statements.
