New DGR for Sheds

The ATO hosted a webinar on 21 September to provide an overview of the new deductible gift recipient (DGR) category for community sheds, which starts from 1 October.

For your convenience we have published copies of the webinar presentation pack and help sheet they provided:

  • Help Sheet – providing guidance on meeting the requirements for DGR endorsement. It contains tips and examples that may help when reviewing your governing documents.
  • Webinar presentation pack – covering what is required to become DGR endorsed, the steps you need to take to apply, and your ongoing responsibilities

Be sure to visit the dedicated ATO webpage at ato.gov.au/communitysheds for additional support and information on:

  • the DGR item number that you need to include in your application
  • requirements for your governing documents, including the best way to submit them with your application
  • how to apply to be DGR endorsed
  • information about tax-deductible gifts and donations
  • A recording of their 21 September webinar session.

Upcoming webinar

If your shed is registering as a charity, be sure to tune into the ACNC hosted Community sheds, charity registration and DGR webinar on 14 October, 12pm-1pm (AEDT). This will step you through the charity registration process and answer your questions.
