As a Christian school business manager you are administering a not-for-profit (NFP) organisation that is also a registered charity. When it comes to tax and super obligations, which are subject to ATO regulatory oversight, the ATO guidance can be very helpful.
The ATO have designed a range of resources that may assist you in your role:
- Induction package for not-for-profit administrators introduces you to the information and services the ATO have to assist you, and contains an overview of NFP tax issues and links to other sections of their website.
- Handover checklist for not-for-profit administrators helps when your NFP organisation changes the administrator of its tax affairs. Use this checklist to hand over your organisation’s tax affairs to the new administrator.
- Self-governance checklist for not-for-profit organisations helps you review your organisation’s status as an NFP organisation, and check how well your organisation understands its tax and super obligations.
For further assistance on tax and super matters you can call the ATO NFP Helpline on 1300 130 248 from 8.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.
