Submission to discussion paper on tax-deductible gift recipient reform opportunities

This is a submission by the Invasive Species Council to the Australia Taxation Office discussion paper on tax-deductible gift recipient reform opportunities that was available for public comment from 15 June to 4 August 2017.

The work of the Invasive Species Council has been widely recognised as valuable by governments and the community.

This submission strongly opposes any requirement for deductible gift recipient (DGR) registered groups to undertake expenditure on environmental remediation. This proposed measure is extremely inefficient, illogical and disruptive and would have an extremely detrimental impact on our work.

Additional comments are made in response to other discussion questions.
