Licence to Conduct a Charitable Collection - Australian Capital Territory


You will need this licence if you are an individual, corporation or unincorporated body and you intend to manage collections for charity within the Australian Capital Territory. A collection is the soliciting or receiving of money or other benefits for a charitable purpose. An individual that organises a collection or manages a collection as a paid employee or agent may not need to be licensed if their employer (for example, a charity) is already licensed for the collection.

Please note that charities registered with the Australian Charities and Non-for-profits Commission (ACNC) do not need this licence, and will not need to report to the Agency.
