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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 https://www.acnc.gov.au/for-charities/manage-your-charity/charity-portal
