Assistant Finance Minister Zed Seselja says the tough new reforms for the charity sector are important, welcome and will allow charities to better help vulnerable Australians.
Sky News host Peter Gleeson said the tough new laws will see government crack down on charities which use resources to encourage illegal activity.
“We’re obviously looking to make sure that charities can raise funds more easily,” Mr Seselja said.
“What we’re going to do is have states and territories – they’ve all signed up – to effectively recognizing each other’s laws and making sure that if you sign up in one state or territory you don’t have to go through the rigmarole in other states and territories.”
Mr Seselja said the “really important” reform is something which has been called for by the charity sector for decades and it will be welcomed.
“It’ll save charities money so that they can do what they do best which is help vulnerable Australians.”
