The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is the national regulator of charities. The resources on this link will help you to know what issues they should look out for. This includes knowing your obligations as well as getting specific state-based advice.

Maybe - it all depends on what State you are in. Click the link on your State or Territory below to discover more.
Northern Territory: The Northern Territory doesn’t have legislation that governs fundraising.
