Transparency Register

Updated: 11 April 2019

The AEC has established a Transparency Register. The Transparency Register contains information about political parties, associated entities, third parties, political campaigners, candidates and Senate groups registered with or recognised by the AEC.

The Transparency Register details the entity name, the associated or registered political party name, whether entities are federally registered (where applicable), the name of the financial controller (where applicable) and links to the relevant periodic disclosure.

Requirements for entities

Associated entities and political campaigners must be registered with the AEC within 90 days of becoming required to register and must maintain up to date records.

Details for the Transparency Registers will be sourced automatically for all entities registered and recognised. Further details may be sourced from the Register of Political Parties and any current candidates in an election if applicable.

Entities are required to make any changes to the register via the Change to Transparency Register form within 90 days of the change occurring. Details listed on the Transparency Register are otherwise accepted as correct until proven otherwise.

If you need assistance please email, or alternatively call the Funding and Disclosure help desk on (02) 6271 4552.
