Annual Returns Locator Service
Please read the following Disclaimer and Information.
For information on the requirement to lodge Annual Returns please refer to the
Financial Disclosure Guides.
While Donors are required to declare only their donations,
Political Parties and Associated Entities must give details of all receipts above the
disclosure threshold for the financial year
($13,000 for 2015-16).
Many of these receipts are not donations and may represent, for example,
subscription fees or proceeds of goods sold.
Although not required by law, most Political Parties and Associated Entities mark each
receipt as a ‘donation’ or an ‘other receipt’.
It is recommended that you read the Glossary
for terms that are used in the Annual Returns Locator Service to ensure correct
interpretation of information provided.
Depending on the volume of concurrent users, you may experience a short
delay while data is being downloaded.
This service contains a database of records that have been entered from the original
Annual Returns lodged with the AEC.
Copies of the original returns, as submitted, are available as Adobe Acrobat PDF files.
While all efforts have been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information in the database,
the definitive information is that contained on the returns.
Any information obtained from the database should be confirmed against the original PDF returns.
