If the financial information for your organisation on the Charities Services website, the Companies Office website or on your profile is more than 18 months old* when you submit a grant request, you need to provide a full set of financial statements (approved by your governance group) for your most recent financial year. These must be uploaded to your organisation profile.

The grant request will be considered incomplete if you don’t provide this information by the closing date for the funding round, and will not be considered for funding.

* Note: here, 18 months means 6 months or more after the end of the last financial year.

If your organisation’s annual operating costs were more than $500,000 for each of the previous two financial years, you must provide financial statements that have been externally reviewed for the most recent accounting period or financial year.

If your organisation’s annual operating costs were more than $1 million for each of the previous two financial years, you must provide financial statements that have been externally audited for the most recent accounting period or financial year.

Charities Services has more information about the requirements for financial reporting.

If your organisation has existed for less than 18 months before a funding round closes, you may not be able to meet the financial information requirements but may still be eligible to request a grant.

Please provide your most recent statement of financial performance. This statement should be for a date no more than 3 months before the closing date for the funding round.
