Disclosures for a member of the NSW Parliament

Political donations and electoral expenditure must be disclosed to the NSWEC after each financial year.

A declaration of disclosures must be made using a NSWEC disclosure form for the relevant year (See Forms).

Five steps to lodging a valid disclosure form

A disclosure form must be submitted in relation to a person who was a member of the NSW Parliament at any time between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017.

If the member of the NSW Parliament has not made or received any political donations and has not incurred any electoral expenditure in the 12-month period use the 'nil' disclosure form.

If the member of the NSW Parliament has either made or received political donations or incurred electoral expenditure in the 12-month period use the 'full' disclosure form.

The official agent of the Member of Parliament is responsible for completing and submitting the disclosure form. If the Member of Parliament is a member of a registered political party, the party agent of the party is the member’s official agent unless another agent was appointed by the member with the consent of the party agent.

The official agent is to refer to the financial and accounting records kept in relation to the member of the NSW Parliament in order to make complete and accurate disclosure.

The disclosure form must be certified by a registered company auditor.

A valid 'full' disclosure form, or a valid 'nil' disclosure form must be lodged with the NSWEC by 22 September of each year. Details about how to submit the disclosure form are on page 9 of the 'full' disclosure form or on page 1 of the 'nil' disclosure form. A valid disclosure form is one that:

  • contains all of the pages (even if some pages contain no disclosures),
  • is completed and signed by the official agent, and
  • is certified by a registered company auditor.

Submit with a 'full' disclosure form:

  • the receipt book containing used and unused copies of receipts issued to political donors for all reportable political donations received,
  • copies of the invoices or receipts for electoral expenditure disclosed in Part F of the form,
  • copies of the electoral material or advertising that relates to the expenditure disclosed in Part F of the form.

An amended disclosure form must be certified by a registered auditor (see step 4).
