  • Preparing for Director IDs? Here’s the lowdown for charities and not-for-profits


    The imminent introduction of Director IDs – a unique identifier designed to help stamp out illegal phoenixing and other fraudulent activity – will impact two million directors across Australia as they transition to the new system. 

    Governance Institute has been busy responding to queries from the not-for-profit (NFP) and charity sector about the likely impact of Director IDs on them, providing clarity on timelines and enforcement and clarifying who exactly must comply. 

    In our lead article, we wrap up the key issues that the NFP sector needs to keep in mind as they prepare for this major overhaul. 

    The major issues impacting the sector will also be canvassed at our Not-For-Profit Governance Forum on 9 December.
