Disclosure threshold

Updated: 28 May 2019

Disclosure of certain information (e.g. details of gifts and donations) is subject to a minimum threshold below which disclosure is not required.

The financial disclosure scheme was amended with effect from 8 December 2005 to increase the threshold to ‘more than $10 000’. This amount is indexed with effect from 1 July each year based on increases in the consumer price index.

The disclosure threshold amount that applies from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019 is more than $13,800.

The disclosure threshold amount that will apply from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 is more than $14,000.

This threshold will also apply to the disclosures made by candidates, Senate groups and donors to candidates.

  • 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018 - $13,500
