On 15 June 2017 the Commonwealth Government released a Discussion Paper on potential changes to the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status system. The proposed changes aim to strengthen governance arrangements, reduce complexity and ensure that eligibility is kept up to date.
DGR status allows an organisation to receive gifts and contributions for which donors are able to claim a tax deduction. The DGR tax arrangements are intended to encourage philanthropy and provide support for the not-for-profit (NFP) sector.
