There are many different types of trusts, but for a trust to be a charitable trust, it must hold assets and support a charitable purpose.

We assist clients understand the regulatory framework of registered charities and provide support through each stage of the registration process, to gain access to charity tax concessions and other benefits associated with charity registration with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

We work with charities and foundations and assist with the registration process with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, and registration of the charitable trust as a deductible gift recipient (DGR). Such registrations are required to ensure the charitable trust is eligible to continue receiving tax deductible donations.

The registration of charitable trusts also creates ongoing reporting obligations with the ACNC. Speak to our specialist trust lawyers to assist you with:
