Requirements before you register
If your organisation is not yet a registered not for profit organisation, then you
will need to do this before registering online with donations.com.au.
Your registration may be examined by various government agencies
for bona fides. Real time eCommerce capabilities for your organisation
will not be enabled until suitable evidence from the Government
Agencies/ATO of registration (eg. letter/certificate from ATO/State
Agencies, listing on the ATO web site) is provided.
From 1 July 2000, if an organisation is not endorsed
as a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient), it will lose any current gift
deductibility and income tax exempt status. Organisations will need
to apply to the ATO to be endorsed as a DGR.
