What is a Registered Charity or PBI and a Deductible Gift Recipient?
Paupiyala Tjarutja Aboriginal Corporation (PTAC) is a registered charity or Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) and Deductible Gift Recipient from an ATO standpoint?
That means we can accept gifts or donations on behalf of donors that are tax deductible and directly benefit the community we serve.
The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is the national regulator of charities in Australia.
Since 3 December 2012, charities wanting to access Commonwealth charity tax concessions (and other benefits), need to register with the ACNC. Although many charities choose to register, registration with the ACNC is voluntary.
The ACNC maintains a register (known as the Charity Register), which contains information about registered charities.
A user-friendly way to search the Charity Register, particularly for information on individual charities or to search by particular locations or activity types is via the ['Find a Charity' page] (http://acnc.gov.au/findacharity):
Some information on the Register is only available on the ‘Find a Charity’ page.
