Will Your Association Need to Pay Taxes for the First Time in 2024?

Two years ago, Association Executive Services was the first organisation to alert the NFP sector of the ATO’s announcement:  "If your not-for-profit organisation has an active Australian Business Number (ABN), you must lodge an NFP self-review return to access income tax exemption. Lodgements are required to be made from the 2023–24 income year onwards."

Each NFP organisation must undergo the self-assessment process. Those that need to lodge have until October 2024 to do so.

In this webinar, we have invited Assistant Commission Jennifer Moltisanti back to update us on how the ATO will be supporting thousands of not-for-profit organisations through the process. 

We will be asking all the crucial questions:

  • How do I assess my NFP organisation to determine if it is tax-exempt?
  • What support is there from the ATO?
  • How well do the accounting and bookkeeping population understand the process?
  • If our organisation is not tax-exempt for 2024 and beyond, will our NFP lose its NFP status?
  • Why are some associations exempt from lodging the self-assessment?
  • If the NFP is required to pay tax for 2024, is this retrospective?
  • We have not budgeted for any tax payable – this may create a financial problem in our organisation – is there any form of amnesty or flexibility?
  • Has the ATO identified the potential tax revenue that it will gather from this exercise?
