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 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.
