Financial Disclosure Guide for Donors to Political Parties

Updated: 6 July 2016


Sections 315 and 316 of the Act contain penalty provisions for offences against the funding and disclosure provisions. Refer to Appendix 3 for details of penalties.

The AEC aims to assist political and electoral participants to fulfil their obligations under the Act. The AEC may, however, refer matters to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions for offences against the disclosure provisions when no response or an unsatisfactory response to resolve non-compliance needs to be escalated.
