Non-Audited Financial Acquittals

A non-audited financial acquittal report is an income and expenditure statement for the grant and confirmation that the funding has been spent on the activity in accordance with the Grant Agreement, Schedule and Terms and Conditions.

There is no specific format for a non-audited financial acquittal however it must:

  • adhere to the applicable Australian Accounting Standards and be based on proper accounts and records
  • verify that the funding has been spent on the activity in accordance with the Agreement, Schedule and Terms and Conditions
  • pertain to Departmental funding only (an income and expense statement for your whole organisation is not acceptable)
  • clearly differentiate income and expenditure relating to each grant you are funded for
  • include SACS (Social and Community Services Supplementation) funding if applicable
  • include any other expenditure detail required under the Grant Agreement and/or Grant Opportunity Guidelines
  • be certified by the Board, chief executive officer or an authorised officer of the Organisation.

There is no template for non-audited financial acquittals and they can be submitted in any format (e.g. excel, word, PDF).
