Published referendum returns

Updated: 22 November 2023

The AEC is required to publish referendum entity and referendum donor returns, providing financial information such as donations and expenditure, before the end of 24 weeks after voting day.

A referendum entity incurs referendum expenditure over the disclosure threshold during the referendum expenditure period.

A referendum donor makes one or more donations totalling more than the disclosure threshold to a referendum entity at any time during the referendum expenditure period.

For the 2023 referendum:

  • disclosure threshold: $15,200
