With only a few months to go until the new Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) opens its doors on October 1, the taskforce has been busy finalising various aspects to prepare it for functionality.
To keep the nonprofit sector up to date with their progress, the ACNC interim commissioner Susan Pascoe regularly writes a column.
Over the past two weeks she has published two posts, each which reveal exciting advancements and prove that the new commission is well on its way to being ready to go.
Here, Australian charities, nonprofits and other interested parties can follow the account and stay informed about news and advancements.
In the same column she also revealed that on the opening day of the ACNC, the organisation should have a brand new website specifically designed to cater for the needs of its users.
"On 1 October, we expect to be launching the new ACNC website which will be found at www.acnc.gov.au," Ms Pascoe writes.
"The new site will replace this ACNC Taskforce website. Staff are currently working very hard to ensure delivery of a site which will contain useful information for both charities and the public," she added.
It is intended that the site will be a valuable source of resources and information for the sector about everything ACNC related.
In the meantime, the interim website and the Twitter account are some of the best ways to stay informed about current movements.
Last week they were present at the Defining Taxing and Regulating Not-for-profits conference in Melbourne, which Ms Pascoe said was a great opportunity to network and learn more about the sector.
In his opening speech at the event, assistant treasurer David Bradbury said that this was "one of the most significant conferences of not-for-profit reform in Australia in 2012".
He then went on to explain some of the reasons behind the reforms and how they would cut red tape and improve processes within the industry.
To close this column, Ms Pascoe explained that the public submissions for the draft ACNC legislation had now finished but she looked forward to sharing them with the sector once they had been received and processed.
