Namal Australia was established in November 2017 and now has been registered with the Australian Charities & Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC). Functioning as the independent national regulator of charities in Australia, ACNC ensures public trust in the not-for-profit sector through greater accountability and transparency. It also works to further the efficiency of this sector. In order to be entitled to tax exempt status and other benefits, charities in Australia are required to be registered with ACNC. At present, roughly 56,000 charities and non-profit organisations are registered with ACNC.
