Red tape reduction progress in Victoria

The Victorian Consumer Acts Amendment Bill 2016 has been passed, leading to significant red-tape reduction for thousands of the state’s registered charities.

The omnibus bill facilitates streamlining across consumer affairs in Victoria.  Importantly, it allows appropriate state-government ministers to exempt cohorts of incorporated associations from having to report direct to Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV).

It is expected that this new power will see an end to the duplicate reporting of Victorian incorporated associations registered as charities.

The ACNC will work with the consumer-affairs minister Marlene Kairouz and CAV to ensure that the charities will be required to report only to the ACNC.

The commission is confident that announcements by other state and territory governments are on the horizon.
