Candidates are reminded that they must lodge their first campaign donation return today (10 February 2023).
The return forms can be downloaded and lodged electronically on the candidate portal.
A return must be lodged regardless of whether you have received gifts with an amount or value in excess of $500 or not. If you have not, you should lodge a NIL return.
Penalties may apply if this return is not lodged.
More information, including access to the candidate portal, can be found on our candidate returns for council elections page.
