New annual report template for charities

Over the next few months, most charities will hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM).  To assist charities in preparing for their AGM, the ACNC has developed a free annual-report template.
The template suggests items that the report should cover including, an overview of activities, governance, finances and other important information.

Although the commission does not require charities to prepare an annual report, it is one of the key ways a charity can demonstrate accountability to its members, celebrate achievements and focus on the year ahead.  An annual report can also help in planning AGMs and completing AISs.

The ACNC has a dedicated resources page to help charities to understand their obligations in relation to AGMs.  The page includes several free templates, including:

  • AGM-notice template
  • AGM-agenda template, and
  • AGM-minutes template
