Disclosure threshold

Updated: 26 May 2014

Disclosure of certain information (e.g. details of gifts and donations) is subject to a minimum threshold below which disclosure is not required.

The financial disclosure scheme was amended with effect from 8 December 2005 to increase the threshold to 'more than $10 000'. This amount is indexed with effect from 1 July each year based on increases in the consumer price index.

The current disclosure threshold amount from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 is more than $12 800.

Past disclosure threshold amounts are:

  • 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014 – $12 400
  • 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013 – $12 100
  • 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012 – $11 900
  • 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011 – $11 500
