Returns of Donations Exceeding $20,000

This page carries detail of returns of party donations that exceeding $20,000 from the same donor filed with the Electoral Commission between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2010. 

Returns had to be filed within 10 working days of the receipt of the donation or the final donation aggregating to more than $20,000 from the same donor in a 12 month period.

The relevant law is sections 210C and 210F of the Electoral Act 1993.  Since 1 January 2011 section 210C has been amended so that a party secretary must file a return in respect of every party donation that exceeds $30,000.
Duly completed returns are available for inspection at the Electoral Commission's offices.  The most recent return(s) are at the top of the table.
