State Secretary Newsletter – 27 February 2019

ACNC Responsible People

As a result of the Banking Royal Commission, we have been advised that it is vital that the records ACNC hold for responsible people at your sub-Branch match the records held by your bank for signatories. If these records do not match you need to advise the sub-Branch Support Team as soon as possible by emailing with the corrections to be made.

We have been informed that failure to do so may result in your bank temporarily suspending your sub-Branch accounts.

To check ACNC records for your sub-Branch please go to
