Record keeping and Consumer Protection

Associations information statements

The associations information statement is required to be lodged with Consumer Protection within 6 months after the end of the association’s financial year and confirms:

  • the association’s address
  • that the association has at least 6 voting members
  • the date of the most recent Annual General Meeting; and
  • the revenue for the most recent financial year.

The annual information statement can be submitted using AssociationsOnline. There is also a step-by-step video available about lodging the statement.

Updating the association’s address

It is important to ensure the association’s contact address recorded with Consumer Protection remain up to date and correct.  The Act requires associations to provide the Commissioner with an address and an address for service of notice and any changes to these addresses must be lodged within 28 days. The new address can be easily registered through AssociationsOnline.
