About the form
An environmental organisation 'must have agreed to give the Secretary of the Environment Department within a reasonable period after the end of each income year, statistical information about gifts made to the public fund during that income year'.
Environmental organisations must provide the Department with statistical information about the donations and gifts made to the public fund for a financial year within four months of the end of that year. Four months is considered 'a reasonable period' for legal purposes.
The Minister and the (Assistant) Treasurer have approved a rule (refer to section 2.3) that requires registered organisations to include the following information in their annual statistical returns:
- to provide information on the expenditure of public fund monies and the management of public fund assets;
- to provide audited financial statements for the financial year for the environmental organisation; and
- to answer any questions about the public fund.
This will involve completing a statistical return form provided by the Department to organisations upon being admitted to the Register.
